While you are welcome to join any of Friends of Mt Tam guided hikes, you may wish to hike on your own. There are several hundred miles of trails in the State Park and adjacent areas such as the Marin Municipal Water District for you to explore. (See also Mt Tam hiking.)
Because there are so many trails on Mt Tamalpais, we strongly recommend you bring a map with you.
- Get directions and download a detailed PDF map here. (It’s a big map.)
- You may purchase maps at the kiosk at Pantoll Ranger Station or the East Peak Visitor Center.
