Tennessee Valley to Muir Beach Hike

Often considered the best hiking spot in Marin County, Tennessee Valley features many stunning coastal landscapes. This hike puts a twist on the usual Tennessee Valley experience - a turn north over a ridge and into Muir Beach. The actual beach in Muir Beach is quite pleasant and picturesque (a habitat restoration project and the construction of new facilities such as public restrooms are scheduled to be finished by the day of the hike). Muir Beach also offers the chance to have some mid-hike bangers & mash and beer at the town's English pub. Our route into Muir Beach misses Tennessee beach, but we will have the option to extend the hike slightly on the way back and see Tennessee Beach also.

    Sorry I bailed last minute. I went dancing last night and realized I still feel pretty bad after getting the flu last week.

    Cody- it looks like this hike has ppl from another group going.. So hopefully it will be a good sized group. Yaline- I do not mind driving, just need to stop at Rei on the way back, trading in a Xmas gift for a family member since I was in the area.

    Is this hike still happening even with only 3 people going? I was hoping for a group hike! :(

      Hey Cody! As Carolyn stated above, we are joining a bigger group of about 24 people :)

    20 people have RSVPed for this hike on the Norcal hikers meetup site - much more of a social event than it appears.

    Is this actually in the PM, aka, after dark?

      Thanks for catching that Cody. No, I wouldn't want to walk along those sea cliffs in the dark.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
