Blue printing on white background, prices are listed on the front and back covers. Back panel also compares mileages and prices for eight other mountain railroads, proving that the Mount Tamalpais and Muir Woods Railway offers the best value. Five of the other eight mountain railroads are in Switzerland. Two panels on the same side of the sheet when folded out display a map of the Bay Area. Another panel on that same side of the sheet displays a long list of areas and attraction you can see on the Mount Tamalpais trip. One panel offers an origin of the name, Tamalpais, includes a menu from the Tavern of Tamalpais, and information about the gravity car. The remaining two panels on that side of the sheet have photos and narrative descriptions of The Muir Inn, tent life in Muir Woods, and the Tavern of Tamalpais. On the reverse side of the sheet, there are numerous photos and narrative descriptions of the trip and sights along the way.
