Even though we took this hike a while ago, the shots are worth sharing. And, hopefully can inspire anyone lucky enough to be living in or visiting San Francisco to make the short drive across the bridge and take one for me yourself.
Mount Tam is so close to the city it seems shocking that it could be as beautiful as it is. There are tons of trails there so you can find anything to fit your activity level. Ours was actually pretty easy, but it didn’t make it any less exciting. Being from the East Coast, I still just can’t get over the view you get on the other side of the country. And when you’re all finished and have sufficiently worked up an appetite, do yourself a favor and take a detour over to The Marshall Store for oysters and a beer. It’s this little shack on the side of Highway 1 that’s situated right next to Bonlinas Bay. It’s seriously one of my very favorite spots in the whole country. I promise you’ll love it!
