Tennessee Valley to Muir Beach - Potluck w/ a stop at Tennesse Cove

  • Jul 13, 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 be a 9 mile hike.

We'll hike from Tennessee Valley to Tennessee Cove where we'll have a vino/snack break, then follow the inland trail to Muir Beach, where we'll have lunch and enjoy chilling on the beach.

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). You'll get a good workout as usual.




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:

Vino! and cups

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, foof, food (dried fruit/nuts/seeds, chips, dips, salsa, cheese/crackers, deserts - be creative!) The idea is to have a big pot luck, not eat our own sandwiches. It's much more fun and connecting this way!

Vino to share at lunch (and paper cups)

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

$5 activity fee - thx

    Muir Beach Closed July 8-Late November, 2013
    From Park E-ventures, June 2013

    Muir Beach will be closed July 8–late November, while the parking lot is realigned and wetlands restored. The parking lot, all parking in the area, and all services, including restrooms, will be closed during construction. The Pelican Inn will remain open, as well as trails leading from other areas of the park to Muir Beach, such as Tennessee Valley and Dias Ridge. With the parking lot closed and all services and restrooms removed from the area, park users are encouraged to continue along the trail; extended stops at the beach are not recommended during this time.

    Hi, just one question. Do we carry around food and drinks during the hike or do we come back to the car?
