Stinson Beach

The Perfect Mount Tam Day: A Play in 3 Acts

Who says you have to drive to Tahoe to get away? The Marin Headlands provide their own sort of seasonal inspiration along this three-part, seven-mile loop on majestic Mount Tam (pick up a Mount Tam trail map at boredfeet.com).

Part 1: Beginning halfway up the slopes of Tam’s western flank, take the Matt Davis Trail from Pantoll Ranger Station to Stinson Beach. Gobble up spectacular, bluff-side Pacific panoramas and hear caroling brooks as you whorl toward sea level.

Mind the Waves: Big Swells in Marin This Weekend

Planning on winding your way to Stinson Beach this weekend to take advantage of the warm weather?  Bring your floaties.  They’re predicting huge swells at Marin beaches, the result of a storm coming our way from Japan.  Not the best for casual swimming, but it could make for an extremely exciting Mavericks competition, which kicks off...TBD.  It's still too close to call.
