The beauty of the Northside loop is that it follows the contours around the top of Mt. Tamalpais so you never encounter any insurmountable climbs. Instead you will experience gentle rolling hills, lush green forests on the Northside Trail and amazing views of the entire bay from the south face of the mountain. The terrain on this route varies from technical single-track including a stretch of loose shale, to spacious fire roads.

Northside Loop on Tam — such amazing views!
The trails on Mt. Tam are secluded, you have to work to get there but there are great views in the morning.
