Mount Tamalpais State Park - East Peak Facilities Management Plan

Verna Dunshee Trail - East Peak

Share your thoughts using our online tool!

California State Parks has initiated the planning process to develop a Facilities Management Plan (FMP) for the East Peak area of Mount Tamalpais State Park. The FMP will identify a cohesive vision for East Peak's future in terms of site amenities and recreation opportunities. The Planning Team invites your participation as we begin the planning process.

Planning will include numerous opportunities to provide input and share your vision for East Peak, including:

Online Engagement. Several online activities will be available during the planning process. The first activity is a brief survey that you can complete using the online tool.
Public Meeting. Anticipated for late 2016 (date TBD).
