Directions to trailhead: From Hwy 101, take Mill Valley / Stinson Beach / Hwy 1 exit. Follow Shoreline Hwy until you see the Tennessee Valley Road sign which is only a couple miles from the exit. Turn left into Tennessee Valley Road and drive to the end.

Lost? Late? Call:[masked]-0722.

Note: there is no cell phone signal at the trailhead, so call early if you are lost, once I arrive at the trailhead I won't be able to receive your calls.

      Sorry Tina, there were only 3 people at the carpool location... Please tell me next time if you are driving directly instead of carpooling... I am not willing to drive an hour and a half each way to hike with 3 people....

      We ended up hiking at Ed Levin Park, it was a nice hike but brutally hot under the sun with no shade.

    Hey. I only see 3 people here at the carpool. If that is the total number of attendees today I am not going to the trailhead. Check in and tell me if you are driving by yourself. .
