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 a 9 mile hike. We'll hike from Tennessee Valley to Muir Beach where we'll have a vino/snack break, then follow the inland trail to Tennessee Cove, where we'll have lunch and enjoy chilling on the beach. From there we'll hike a short 2.5 miles back to the parking lot.
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.
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 and more food to share (dried fruit/nuts/seeds, chips, dips, salsa, cheese/crackers, deserts - be creative!)
Vino to share at lunch (and paper cups)
Anything else you want to drink (iced tea, beer, etc.)
$5 activity fee
If you've been on any of my hikes you know what to expect.
Oooh, I hear it coming now...
As always, your sense of humour is required!
