Tennesse Valley/Marin Headlands Hike: 2 Beach Stops, Ocean Views, & Potluck

  • Nov 16, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

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 moderate to strenuous hike (depending on your condition), going from Tennessee Valley to Muir Beach and back.  We'll hike to Tennessee Cove - where we'll have a vino/snack break, then follow the Coastal Trail to Muir Beach - where we'll have lunch and enjoy chilling on the beach.  From there we'll take the inland trail back to Tennessee Valley.

Optional:  go out for a meal/drink after the hike.


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.

    This hike was spectacular! Hiking down to two beaches coupled with the gorgeous views, puts this hike at the top for me. It was challenging at times, but all worth the beauty that surrounded us on such a gorgeous day in November. I would definitely do this hike again!

    I love to hike, but am a bit out of hiking shape! Hope it's not too strenuous. I always bring my sense of humor though, so hopefully that will make up for my lack of conditioning! ;)
