Marin Headlands Coastal Walk: Rodeo Beach, Tennessee Beach, Muir Beach

  • October 26, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Meet Rodeo Beach for a 9:00 DEPARTURE for a brisk paced, 17ish mile hike

Tentative route: Rodeo Beach, Bunker Rd & Coastal to Tenn Vly, to beach & up bluff, Coastal to Muir Beach, Redwood Creek, Miwok & alternative Miwoks to Tenn Vly, back to beach & up hillside to Coastal, to Rodeo Beach.

As always, all are welcome, but please be prepared for the pace, distance, and climbing.

Standard fine print on my fast paced hikes: We stop for lunch, and take another break or two. We regroup at trail junctions, but take few rest stops. If you like to take frequent breaks, or if you need to stop and rest on climbs, these hikes aren't for you. On the other hand, if you like hiking lots of hilly miles at a brisk pace, while taking in some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, please join us. If you aren’t sure you can keep up, but want to try it, please email me to discuss. If you do come, out of courtesy to the rest of the group, please bring a map, and volunteer to take a short cut if you find are struggling to keep up.

    With much thanks to Ralph for organizing and leading this scenic hike under such a good weather, I finally got a chance to upload some of the photos to the Meetup gallery (please let me know if you don't like any of the images in the collection and I'll remove them from the gallery.)

    Also, for those who are interested in the (military) history of the area, the National Park volunteers run a tour of Battery Townsley on the first Sunday of each month (I had incorrectly mentioned 3rd Saturday but that is another open house :-() and here is a link to a photographic portfolio that I put together from roaming through Townsley and the surrounding areas over 2 years ago:

    HI, I am a hiker and usally hike four times a week. I usually do 5 to 7 miles each time. I have hike these trails many time. I usually do some of them and never did the whole 17 miles. I will give it a try. I am looking forward to the challenge.

      cici, glad you're joining us. If you don't know the trails well, be sure to bring a map in case you decide to cut the hike short. Ralph
