Mill Valley Record June 14, 1907

NO MORE MOUNTAIN CLIMBING ON TAMALPAIS AFTER DARK BOISTEROUS CROWDS WHO HAVE FRIGHTENED WOMEN AND BUILT DANGEROUS FIRES ON MOUNTAIN WILL BE TURNED BACK TOMORROW NIGHT.

Some three or four hundred people who have heretofore swarmed into the Valley on Saturday evenings to take the tramp up Mt. Tamalpais must now either stay at home or find some other form of exercise, for beginning with to-morrow night there will be no more tramping parties allowed on Tamalpais after dark. This decision was reached at a conference between the officials of the Town of Mill Valley and the Mt. Tamalpais Scenic Railway last Tuesday evening, when it was decided that immediate action should be taken. To-morrow evening Marshal Staples and six deputies will be stationed on the outskirts of town at the trails leading up the mountain, and all trampers will be turned back, with the information that the owners of the property positively forbid any trespassing. Practically all the property that is traversed by these mountain climbers is owned either by the North Coast Water Company or by the railroad, so there will be no difficulty in enforcing the new edict.
