I really loved this hike. We started from Alpine Lake and made our way upwards toward Mount Tamalpais. There's a lot of different routes to take so I don't think this trail could ever get boring.

Love this trail! It's one of the few in the park that allow you to bring your dogs. The first mile through the woods is amazing, especially on foggy mornings! Tons of options and different routes to explore once you hit the meadows! Always a great hike!
