“The first rule of Tourist Club is you don’t talk about Tourist Club.” While the location of this Bavarian-style lodge in Mount Tamalpais State Park isn’t a total secret, the club can be very hard to find—but it’s worth it when you do. From 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends the club sells pitchers of delicious Austrian beer to the public. The catch? Sweat. It’s a 15- to 20-minute hike to the lodge. And there are multiple trails. One starts at the end of Ridge Avenue in Mill Valley. That’s all we’re saying. Remember Rule #1.
The Tourist Club is open this Saturday, but closed to the public this Sunday and the second Sunday of every month for maintenance.
