Sun Trail


Sun Trail

Make your way along this flat, well-groomed path along the contours of Mt. Tamalpais. The Pacific Ocean, coastal redwoods, the Farallon Islands, and unbelievable sunsets are all there, or not, if the fog is in. See something different every time you take this trail.  

Head along the open grassy fields and into the woods just as one enters the Tourist Club. Check ahead to see if there is a special event that the public can attend.
