MT TAMALPAIS STATE PARK -- Closing mountain top for fire danger

Our rangers have announced that due to dangerous wind conditions, there is a Red Flag Critical Fire Weather Closure for Mt. Tam as of 4 PM today (Saturday 10/3) until at least 10 AM Sunday 10/4. Rangers are in the process of closing down the upper mountain to vehicular traffic and posting "No Fire" notices in the campgrounds. We will update when the closure is either extended or lifted.

Crookedest Railroad:  A history of Mt. Tam’s railroad from 1896 to 1930.

Gravity Cars:  They ran from the top of Mt. Tam to Mill Valley without an engine.

Gravity Car Barn:  How the current barn (and museum) was built to house a perfect replica of a gravity car.

Gravity Car Barn Donors:  A list of the more than fifty donors that made the barn possible.

West Point Inn:  An excellent place to stop for tea or coffee on your hike (donation requested). Built in 1904 as a stopover and restaurant on the Mill Valley/Mt. Tamalpais Railway line, you can still have a pancake breakfast there on Sunday mornings in the summer, or book a room and stay overnight.
