Follow Old Mine Trail to the Easy Grade Trail for a *spectacular* place to watch the sunset. It takes less then 20 minutes to hit a spot with 270 degree views of the Bay Area and ocean.

Perfect location for trail running in Mt Tam. 6.5 mile loop from here down to Stinson Beach via Matt Davis trail is a must - http://bit.ly/1by5cUD

We came by bike and enjoyed their bikers-and-hikers spot for only $5 per person. We shared the space with an old man who basically "hiked" from the bus stop.

Great experience. Even though we arrived at 9:30AM on Saturday we were able to get one of then last available first come, first serve campsites. We stayed at the smallest site (#14), which is directly in the fog line, so we would recommend getting one of spots closer to the parking lot, to avoid getting wet feet :)

In the night, went to the mountain theater (Check the schedule) to listen to lecture about astronomy and had the chance to watch the stars afterwards, through one of the provided telescopes.

Pantoll is a great place to start various hikes including Stinson beach and Muir woods. On Saturdays and Sundays 9:30AM they have guided hikes too.

For hikers and bikers they always have an extra spot.

A nice site within 30 minutes of San Francisco. We headed up there Friday after work and had no problem getting a site, though it was early December and a low of 40°F, so I didn't expect there to be too many people there.

Bring $25 cash per night to put in the box. You have to put a tag in your car so they know whether you've paid or not.

The sites are very close together. Not much privacy.

Each site has a fire ring and a little cabinet to put wood and stuff in. You can purchase firewood from the person in the RV at the bottom of the parking lot if the office is closed.

Very Popular spot to camp, as it is first come first serve there are people showing up as early as 6:30AM to secure a campsite on the weekends in summer time so show up early. It's $25 a night and it can be tough to find parking between 10Am-4PM during summer.

This was such a beautiful and ideal spot to camp at. Super close to the beach (4 miles), and so many trails to go hiking! LOVED camping here.
