North Bay/Mount Tam:
A scenic and straightforward hike (about 45-minutes) to the West Point Inn on Mount Tam, where incredible city views await, and it's the perfect place for a family picnic. Pancake breakfasts are offered from mid-June to mid-October (dates TBD), from 9am to 1pm, making the West Point Inn a great reward after a hike! BONUS: Go on Mother's Day when the West Point Inn hosts a huge pancake breakfast (we went last year and the place was filled with families).
