Near Mt Tamalpais is Muir Woods. From San Francisco, it's the nearest place to find the majestic coastal redwoods, the world's tallest trees. It's an outstanding place to hike. After a few days in the big city, Muir Woods offers a respite from the crowds, the traffic, and the noise.

Some hiking trails lead uphill, to provide an excellent view of the coast and San Francisco Bay. This is a mere warmup compared to the view from Mt Tam. I recommend visiting both Muir Woods and Mt Tam together.
