There are so many trails on Mount Tamalpais. It is highly recommended that, prior going on a hike, one should get directions or download a detailed map. Mount Tamalpais maps can be downloaded online. Moreover, maps can also be purchased at the Pantoll Ranger Station or the East Peak Visitor Center.
