"Methinks that the moment my legs begin to move, my thoughts begin to flow!"
-Thoreau

Science is proving what people have known for ages - going out into nature is one of the best ways to connect with your creative mind. Mt. Tam has been a special place of inspiration for many generations of artists and writers from early settlers from the Hudson Valley to the Bohemian and Beat movements. During this hike you will learn a little bit about this rich history, what happens here today and hopefully make your own creative connection to Mt. Tam.
