Overview

Features: Birding — Views — Wildflowers — Wildlife

Description

The trail starts with 688 stairs as the trail leaves Mill Valley. After crossing Muir Woods Rd, the trail begins climbing fairly steeply up Mt. Tam on a sometimes rooty singletrack. The climb tops out on Cardiac Hill at a four-way intersection. Continue straight as the woods are left behind and the sky opens in front of you. Climb for awhile longer and then the trail will begin to roll, not gently but overall down nonetheless.

The trail enters the woods for section followed by a long set of downhill stairs before you cross a bridge and head left. The trail climbs steeply and then, once again, begins rolling. Finally, the trail will cross Panoramic Highway, continue a short distance more before the final set of stairs leading to Shoreline Highway.
