To quote a buddy who took this hike,
"Lush hills, pristine beach cove, and great views...this hike had it all".
This will a 9 mile hike rated moderate to strenuous (depending on your condition). Parts of this hike are flat and easy, while others are more challenging. We'll hike from Tennessee Valley out to Tennessee Cove, where we'll have a vino/snack break, then follow the Coastal Trail to 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).
From US 101 in Marin County, take the CA 1/Shoreline Highway exit.
After about 0.5 mile, turn left onto Tennessee Valley Road, and go about 1.5 miles to the parking lot at the end of the road. The trailhead is at the end of this parking lot.
