The radome is seen near the center at the very top. In fact, it appears that a second radome is there, partially hidden by the trees. If so, that means the tower / radome that's fully visible is the old AN/FPS-107 (most recently AN/FPS-66A) search radar tower, now torn down. The one that's partially visible is the old AN/FPS-26A, then AN/FSS-7, then AN/FPS-116, and now ARSR-4 radar tower -- the one that's still standing and still in-use.

The view is from the northwest looking more or less southeast.

The former Mill Valley AFS property is in the process of being restored to its natural state, to be part of the surrounding Mt. Tamalpais State Park.

ARSR-4
Housing area of the former Mill Valley AFS, home now to only deer and other wildlife. Look carefully and you can see three deer near the end of the road.
One thing that hasn't changed is the view of San Francisco from the mountain.
