Closure of Inn During a Red Flag Alert / Poor Air Quality Alert

 

The Inn is closed during “Red Flag” fire alerts announced by the MMWD and/or Fire District personnel.  The Innkeeper and three additional people (i.e. few enough people to fit into one vehicle) may remain at the Inn during Red Flag days unless instructed by the authorities to leave the premises.  In the event of closure of the Inn due to Red Flag fire alerts, the Innkeeper and Reservationist will attempt to contact overnight guests to inform them of the Inn closure.  All overnight fees for reservations canceled because of Red Flag fire alerts will be refunded. 

 

These same policies and practices apply when there is officially declared Poor Air Quality on Mt. Tamalpais.  If you have questions about whether either of these alerts are in effect visit the West Point Inn website, or call the innkeeper at 415-388-9955.

Cell Phones and Electronics

 

Cell phone, computers, radios, TV, and video games are not permitted in the common areas. The Innkeeper has a telephone and internet connection in his/her quarters for incoming calls and for use in case of emergency

 

Driving to the Inn

 

Driving in to the Inn is not generally permitted and is allowed only in very limited situations.  Guests who have state-issued ADA parking placards may drive into the Inn and park in the designated ADA parking space upon making advance arrangements with the on-duty Innkeeper.  Typically, guests reserving the entire Inn or who are injured or unable to hike to the Inn will be permitted to drive in, subject to MMWD limits on vehicles. Other guests may drive to the Inn only with prior Innkeeper approval. Anyone driving to/from the Inn must drive carefully and slowly, as hikers and bikers frequently use the same road. Once parked at the Inn, vehicles may be driven off the premises prior to checkout only in an emergency or with the on-duty Innkeeper’s approval.

 

If you are driving to the Inn use the Old Railroad Grade fire road.  This road is an uneven and unpaved road surface. High clearance vehicles are recommended, but not essential if you drive slowly and carefully. Cell phones do not work everywhere on Mt. Tamalpais, so we advise you to obtain the gate operating code before starting up to Mt. Tamalpais.  To get the code call the Innkeeper on duty at 415-388-9955 during the Inn’s daytime business hours. Tuesday – Sunday, 11 am to 5 pm.

 

To get to the Fire Road, start at Pantoll Ranger Station in Mount Tamalpais State Park. This is located at the crossroads of Panoramic Highway and East Ridgecrest Boulevard. From Pantoll take East Ridgecrest Boulevard which is located across the street from Pantoll Parking Lot.  Continue up East Ridgecrest Boulevard for 3.1 miles, following the signs for East Peak. The Old Railroad Grade Fire Road fire road is unmarked, but located on the right side of East Ridgecrest Boulevard below the parking lot at the top of Mt. Tamalpais. Entrance to the fire road while heading toward East Peak requires a sharp steep right turn onto the fire road.  A less challenging turn is possible if one continues up into the East Peak parking lot to make a U-turn, and returns to the fire road for a left turn. There is a locked electric-powered gate at the entrance to the fire road. The gate has a number pad, which is reachable from the driver’s side window. Enter the code you received from the Inn’s Innkeeper. Once you drive through the gate, it will automatically close. 

 

It is about a 1.3 miles from the gate to the Inn. This road is shared with cyclists and hikers, another reason for driving slowly and cautiously. You will park at the Inn’s accessible parking space. No gate code is needed on the return journey. As you approach the gate, stop about 15 feet from the gate and wait for the gate to automatically open.  Once you drive through the gate, it will automatically close.

Note: If you are a repeat guest and familiar with our policies and process, you may make your Reservation now.​
