"Mt. Tamalpais, or Mt. Tam as locals call it, has been attracting wanderers for more than a century. There is a little of everything here, including open grassland, dense laurels, redwood- and fern-filled canyons, and oak knolls. As the name suggests, the trail follows the path of an old railroad grade. Along the way, hikers can even stop at the historical railroad-built West Point Inn for refreshment." Read more
