https://www.irunfar.com - The Marin Headlands and Mount Tamalpais combine to form one of the greatest parklands near an urban population center. Much of the area is protected within public lands, including the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Muir Woods National Monument, Marin Municipal Water District, and Mount Tamalpais State Park. From sweeping coastal vistas to old growth redwoods to sandy beaches, this region provides a quintessential Northern California coastal experience. What’s more, this spectacular parkland is only a channel away from the bustling streets of San Francisco via a crossing of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. A myriad of trails give ample opportunity for exploration and discovery. There is literally something for everyone. Suffice it to say, covering each trail is well beyond the breadth of this guide, but we’ll provide you with a description of some of our favorite trails in the Marin Headlands, Muir Woods, Mount Tamalpais State Park, and Mount Tamalpais Watershed. We’ll also share some favorite local races and running gear shops.
