Standing at the rocky outcropping's apex, the scenery thrills visitors and locals alike: Mount Tam and the Golden Gate beam to the north, San Francisco and its parks glint below, and a gleaming Mount Diablo struts its massive profile to the east. On a clear day, Bolinas and Stinson beaches can be seen on the horizon.
And you won't be bumping up against many others - locals or tourists. At the summit, you can explore small paths, enjoying clumps of Douglas irises and California poppies in season, until you come upon the dramatic circle on the ground that is the footprint of the water tank.
A classic picnic spot that’s unbeatable on a clear day. Grab burritos, Tecates, and your bestie, and feel the burn hiking up Clayton Street to this scenic destination.
