Hiking, Then Drinking, Then Hiking Again on Mount Tam, California
The German Tourist Club is a not-so-secret-secret--a Bavarian-style bier haus on the flanks of Mount Tam, overlooking Muir Woods. If you can find the place, they’ll serve you a pitcher of German draft on the patio, between 2pm and 6pm weekends (except the second Sunday of every month). Lazy folk trek in 20 minutes from the end of Ridge Ave, but you should work up a proper thirst by hiking one mile into the Sun Trail from the Dipsea Trail. The rest of the research is up to you. And don’t tell ‘em we told you.
