Distance: ~ 2.5 miles
Trail(s): Gravity Car Fire Trail, Old Railroad Grade Fire Trail, Hoo Koo E Koo Trail, Nora Trail, Matt Davis Trail, Panoramic Highway
Where’s it at? Eastern Mt. Tamalpais State Park


A friend and I took her dog for a walk up on Mt. Tamalpais. We met at the Cafe Del Sol in Mill Valley and grabbed a delicious lunch before heading out. We parked and began hiking up around the Fire Station which started out as a gradually graded fire road. Soon we turned onto the Hoo Koo E Koo trail and hiked a bit further to a spot on the creek which had a nice waterfall and bridge. I honestly don’t know what it’s called and couldn’t locate it on a map, but it was a great spot to stop and eat lunch. We also drank a nice bottle of Syrah and just relaxed a while.

After lunch we hiked onward through both single track and fire roads and ended up at a spot I’d been to before while hiking Bootjack and Matt Davis Trail from Muir Woods. The views of San Francisco bay, Mt. Tamalpais and Muir Woods were delightful. I’ll be the first to admit I need to do a LOT more exploration of Mount Tam including a hike to the summit which has eluded me for so long now.
