Marin Conservation League’s Walk Into (Conservation) History series continues into the fall with our twelfth walk to beautiful Mt. Tamalpais.
The looming presence of Mt. Tamalpais is Marin’s most familiar and iconic natural feature. But did you know that Mt. Tam’s history is also one of the great conservation achievements of the Bay Area, if not the nation?
Join MCL in collaboration with Mt. Tam Interpretative Association, MMWD and others to hear the story of how Mt. Tam was gradually transformed from private to public land. It is a tale of astounding vision and persistence on the part of many dedicated people.
This family-friendly 4½-mile hike through State Park and MMWD lands is free and open to the public. Wear layers, sunscreen and comfortable shoes, and bring a picnic lunch, water, camera and don’t forget your binocs!
Directions: Meet at the Rock Spring parking area (near the Mountain Theater). The hike will follow a 4½-mile loop to Mountain Theater and West Point Inn by way of Bootjack Camp and Old Stage Road. Some hills. We will stop and picnic at West Point Inn. Sorry—dogs are not allowed on State Park trails.
