Description

Added by Josiah Roe

A western spur of Mt. Tamalpais, Trojan Point gives breathtaking views up and down the Northern California Coast from San Francisco to Point Reyes, often times above the fog. Golden brown in the summer and Ireland like green in the winter, it also provides an excellent vantage point for shooting the endlessly photogenic Pan Toll road. 

The endlessly scenic Trojan Point can be reached by taking the Panoramic Highway to Pantoll road from Stinson Beach to the west, or Mill Valley / Highway 1 to the east. It can also be reached by taking West Ridgecrest Boulevard from the north from the Fairfax-Bolinas road. 

Park at the large parking lot just off Pantoll road but below Ridgecrest Blvd. and the Rock Springs Parking lot. Numerous trails lead from the parking lot, but the trail to the top of Trojan Point heads directly up the hill to the south.

Reviews

Easy parking and a short, uphill walk out to the point. It's a stunning spot to catch a sunset or to simply relax and take in the views.

Park in the parking and it's a two minute walk up the hill. Easy walk but great views of the Bay Area and the ocean.
