Just north of San Francisco's Golden Gate is Mount Tamalpais. The park has redwood groves and oak woodlands with a spectacular view from the 2,571-foot peak. More than 50 miles of hiking trails are within the park and connect to a larger, 200 mile long trail system. The Sidney B. Cushing Memorial Amphitheatre was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. The natural-stone amphitheater seats 3,750 people and features the Mountain Play each spring, produced every year since 1913.For more information on the park, please visit www.parks.ca.gov/mttamalpais.
