Mount Tam takes a while to drive up just to start a trail but boy is it worth it. Basically, the mountain has two sides to it; one with long grass and boulders, and another with thick forestry. Both offer amazing views and panoramic moments. The grassy side of the mountain is pretty similar no matter where you go. Lots of rolling hills that go straight down. They’re amazing to take in, but once was enough for our crew.
The other side of the mountain has acres and acres of shaded routes and trails. We hiked inward for about an hour and decided to turn back before it got too dark. We’ll be back for sure to cover more ground and explore the uncharted hikes within!
