Trails of Mount Tamalpais, Muir Woods, and Marin Headlands

The late Jerry Olmsted's Rambler's Guide to Trails of Mt. Tamalpais, Muir Woods, and Marin Headlands was the first modern, delightful map of Marin County's signature mountain and its most popular trails. In an era when most hiking maps were hand-drawn, single-color maps with fat cardstock covers, Olmsted and cargographer Kristen Bergstrom designed their map with sharp red trails, USGS contours, shaded relief, and a strong sense of color and history, inspired by the best hiking maps of Europe.

From 1983 to 2008, through ten editions, this was the go-to map for Bay Area hikers and bicyclists exploring Marin. When it disappeared, used copies sold for ridiculous prices on EBay.

Pease Press is proud to reissue Trails of Mount Tamalpais, Muir Woods and Marin Headlands. The map is completely updated for 2014 but retains much of its original flavor. Cartographer Ben Pease revised the trails with crisp GIS art, and checked key sections with a measuring wheel and compass. The map includes all recent trail changes in the Marin Headlands and Mt. Tamalpais Watershed. Trail mileages, facilities information, and public transit routes help you plan your trip.


Tam Thumbnail June 2014up arrowLike Olmsted's original map, our new map extends from Bolinas Ridge to the Golden Gate. We extended the north edge of the map to include 4 new trailheads at Whites Hill Summit and San Geronimo Valley.

As our first edition is printed on paper; we moved the cover from lower left to uper right for a more durable fold.

East Peak detail June 2014up arrowAbove is a detail of Mt. Tamalpais. Bike-legal trails are shown in purple; hiking and hiking/equestrian trails are in red. The blue 1000 meter, UTM grid is helpful for GPS navigation.

SF northup arrowThe late historian Lincoln Fairley contributed the history text in the bottom corner of the map, a reminder that genrations walked (and built) these trails before us. Next time we'll add a few more women!
