Matt Davis Trail  →  Stinson Beach

Chris and I finally got a chance to get outside this past weekend and headed up the winding roads to Mount Tamalpais.

We started on the Matt Davis Trail at Pantoll Campground but drove right past the parking lot to save the $8 and parked on the side of the road about a half a mile past the ranger station and campground. The trail winds through lush forest and fields covered in wild flowers before heading down into the ravine towards Stinson Beach. It's a short walk through the cutest little beach town to get to the beach, where we took a water + snack break before heading back up the trail. A Sunday well spent. 

Total trail time = 4.5 hours / 10 miles
