AAA Editor Notes

Mount Tamalpais State Park, 6 mi. w. on Panoramic Hwy., encompasses 6,300 acres of picturesque coastal hill country dominated by triple-peaked Mount Tamalpais; the mountain's profile from the south is said to resemble a sleeping Native American girl. Hiking and bicycling trails and a winding road lead to spectacular vistas at the summit, where there is a visitor center. Theatrical productions known as the Mountain Play are presented in the Sidney B. Cushing Memorial Amphitheatre, 801 Panoramic Hwy., also known as the Mountain Theater. It was constructed out of rock by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, although performances have taken place in the amphitheater since 1913. Recreational activities are permitted. Camping is permitted. Picnicking is permitted. Food is available.
