Whatís a good mountain climb in Marin County?

I remember someone telling me about this good climb in Marin. About 45 minutes uphill to the top of the trail. Food venders at the top. Awesome view. Great ride down.

does this description sound familiar? A very steep mountain bike climb.

Eldridge Grade from Phoenix Lake to the top of Tam. Rocky in places and steep in places. Sometimes the refreshment stand at the top is open. If I recall correctly there is a vending machine also.
If you're looking for something less steep there is the Old Railroad Grade from Mill Valley to the top of Tam.
