Mount Tam Circumnavigation

My parents visited for Christmas and we hiked every day they were here – it was fantastic. Here are some pictures from our hike from the Rock Springs parking lot around the top of Mount Tam. Rock Spring trail to West Point Inn, then up Old Railroad Grade to Miller. Take a left on International, a left on Northside, a left on Arturo. Explore the military ruins by West Peak and try to find the Mountaintop trail. Quick wiggle on to Ben Stein and you did it!

Tomales Point and Thule Elk – Point Reyes

Image

I love Point Reyes. And Elk. This hike combines both. Head to Point Reyes and drive as far north as you can. Park and enjoy the 8 mile out and back. Bring a snack for the point and a camera for the wildlife.
