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.
What To Bring:
Good Hiking Boots/shoes
Layered clothing, hat, sunscreen
At least 1 liter of water
Vino/snacks for our pre-lunch break during the hike
Food and more food to share (dried fruit/nuts/seeds, chips, dips, salsa, cheese/crackers, deserts - be creative!)
Vino to share at lunch (and paper cups)
Anything else you want to drink (iced tea, beer, etc.)
$5 Fun Fee
If you've been on any of my hikes you know what to expect.
Oooh, I hear it coming now...
As always, your sense of humour is required!
