Mt. Tamalpais #2a: Mountain Theater/West Point Inn Guided Hike [weekday]

This gentle loop hike offers first rate views and scenery while visiting a number of historic Mt. Tamalpais sights along the way.  These will include the 3,500 seat Mountain Amphitheater and the West Point Inn, where we will stop for lunch and enjoy a beautiful vista that includes the Bay, San Francisco, the top of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Pacific Ocean.

The hike covers 5 miles and about a[masked] foot elevation change. Wear good hiking shoes and bring plenty of water. 

We will gather at the Pantoll Ranger Station parking lot located at the junction of Panoramic Way and Pantoll Road. Parking is available at the Ranger Station for an $8 day use fee; there are several free spots available across the road for early arrivals however.  Afford sufficient time for the winding drive up to the Ranger Station; it is 8.5 miles from the Highway 101 exit and can take from 20-30 minutes depending on traffic.

This and other Mt. Tam guided hikes will be offered for a $5 fee payable by PayPal or by check in advance. Refunds only if hike is cancelled/postponed.

      I am coming from SF, if you are willing to put up with a very old car and can make it to Outer Richmond or the GG bridge parking by 9.15 (there is a bus to the bridge).

      Eva, Phyllis, I'd like to carpool. I'm on the peninsula; I'll be driving to or through SF. My car or yours...

    Is there any public transportation to the start point? I don't have a car but would love to go.

      I believe that Marin Transit #61 goes to the Pantoll Ranger Station. I am going up there to do the hike myself today and will check for you. You can also go to: www.511.org to access a transit trip planner and schedules.

    Is the $5 fee for the organizer or does the Mt. Tam tour cost that much?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
