In the language of the Coast Miwok tribe, "tamal" means bay and "pais" means mountain. So it makes sense that from the 2,571-foot east peak of Mt. Tamalpais, visitors overlook the Pacific and San Francisco Bay, not to mention the city of San Francisco, redwood-lined creeks, stands of Douglas fir and oak-dotted pastures.
