Tam Experts, Help me out please

Planning on a early Saturday afternoon ride up Tam. Not sure what would be the quickest route to go. This is just an assault on the mountain. An up and down, if you will.

My question is this, where the heck should I park to do this?

Well, I'm hardly an expert but I'll give my 2 cents. If I drive there, I like to park in Fairfax (there's a free lot right in the "downtown" area) and head up Bolinas-Fairfax road. This guy has a pretty thorough description:

If I were in town, I'd join you. Oh well ... bad timing. You doing Marin Century, or is that too easy, and you doing Mt. Tam Double?
