Mt. Tam West Peak Hike

Register here.

Join filmmaker Gary Yost and Marin Municipal Water District ranger Matt Cerkel on Mt. Tam for a special talk about the true peak of our beloved mountain. Gary and Matt will lead you on a hike from the Mountain Theater overflow parking lot up the Mountaintop Trail to the long-abandoned Mill Valley Air Force Station, once used for targeting short-range nuclear missiles at incoming Russian bombers during the Cold War. Gary will discuss what he learned about the area while making his award-winning, “Invisible Peak Trilogy,” and he’ll update everyone on the quest to restore the West Peak of the mountain. Matt will bring his deep knowledge of the flora, fauna, and biological ecosystem of this very unique and fragile portion of Mt. Tam.  We’ll also discover spectacular vistas and secret corners of the mountain, and learn about some of the plants and animals that live on Mt. Tam.
