Hike Marin Headlands: Includes Muir Beach, Tennessee Cove, Amazing Coastal Views

  • Mar 2, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To quote another Meetup buddy who took this hike,

"Lush hills, pristine beach cove, and great views...this hike had it all".

 

 

 

The Plan: This will a 9 mile hike.  We'll hike from Tennessee Valley to Muir Beach where we'll have a vino/snack break, then follow the inland trail to Tennessee Cove, where we'll have lunch and enjoy chilling on the beach.  From there we'll hike a short 2.5 miles back to the parking lot.

Optional:  go out for a meal/drink after the hike.

I'm rating this one moderate, though parts may be considered strenuous (depending on your condition).

 

 

 

Directions: From US 101 in Marin County, take the CA 1/Shoreline Highway exit. After about 0.5 mile, turn left onto Tennessee Valley Road. Go about 1.5 miles to the parking lot at the end of the road.

Anything else you want to drink (iced tea, beer, etc.)
