From this turn off you will drive .8 miles to “4 Corners” where you will proceed straight (though it appears to veer to the left a bit). (If you make a sharp left you will go to Muir Woods, and a slight right will take you on Sequoia Valley Rd back down to Mill Valley). The middle road appears to go straight and a bit to the left. This road points to Mt. Tamalpais and Stinson Beach.
From 4 Corners you will drive 4.5 miles up the mountain (at 1.7 miles you will see Mt. Home Inn on the right and a sign for Mt.
