This loop will visit the Mountain Theater and cover a portion of the southern side of Mount Tamalpais ("Mt. Tam"). The trail has frequent vistas of southern Marin and the Bay Area. The start point is fairly high up the side of Mt. Tam on the road to the top. The Mountain Theater has been around since 1913 and has developed into a bit of an institution with its outdoor performances. Your basic open air amphitheater built on a hillside overlooking one spectacular Bay Area vista. Performances would need to be good and so they are! The rest of the walk, alternating forests and stellar views. A pallet cleanser followed by a visual treat.
