Guest Rules

The Tourist Club’s members are hikers and mountaineers who enjoy nature and want to help others do the same. We are closed to guests unless an event that is specifically open to guests is posted on our calendar, such as our annual festivals and occasional guest weekends and benefits. Our members volunteer to staff the club for these events, and they are happy to talk to guests about our club, its mission, our activities, and membership.

We require guests to observe the following rules when visiting our club:

  1. No outside alcoholic beverages are permitted at any time
  2. Each guest must have a valid ID proving legal age to purchase or consume beer or wine
  3. Alcoholic beverages must be consumed in designated areas and cannot leave the premises
  4. No smoking except in designated areas. Be aware of fire risk at all times.
  5. No outside food is permitted at Maifest, Sommerfest, or Kinderfest
  6. Guests may bring food for a picnic on Guest Weekends, but they must pack out their own trash
  7. Dogs are not allowed anywhere on the club property, with the exception that members’ dogs only are allowed on leash. Yes, we know who they are.See Dogs below
  8. Groups with total attendees greater than seven (7) persons are prohibited
  9. Guests are required to respect signs indicating areas and tables reserved for members-only

Guests who ignore these rules will be asked to leave the club

Bitte beachten Sie (Please note)

  • We do not accept credit cards, debit cards, or checks. There is no ATM on the premises.
  • All tables are first-come, first-served. We do not take reservations.
  • Our facility is not ADA accessible
  • Dogs
    • Guests’ dogs are not allowed anywhere on club property
    • Please, do not tie up your dog on the trail, on the club’s access road, or anywhere else around the club. They are not happy, and their complaints disturb our neighbors. Besides, we love dogs, and we don’t like seeing them treated that way.
    • Guests should be aware that dogs are prohibited in Muir Woods National Monument, and on trails and fire roads in Mt. Tamalpais State Park
