Mill Valley to Stinson Beach 10mi

meet at the bus shelter across from Tam High at 9am. run to the mill valley coffee depot (flat) then up cascade drive then up the tenderfoot trail (climb). pass the mountain home inn and pantoll ranger station (water here) then to Stinson beach via the matt davis trail. grab lunch at the sand dollar, relax at the beach or do an additional mile or two with me up the dipsea if yer feelin it. a shuttle takes you back to Tam High at 1:51pm ($2) arriving 236pm! this is a "moderate" run in that it climbs one hill, rolls then descends. nothing particularly heinous. there are some options to shorten this... turn around at mountain home inn and retrace your steps back to your car OR stop at pantoll and catch an earlier shuttle back.

I can fit a few people in my outback and def encourage car pooling. dan @[masked] for a ride. I'm at[masked]th ave (19th at fulton) if you wanna meet at my place or can rendezvous somewhere (sports basement p-lot?).

    Who took all these great pictures and how did you have time to while we were running through the woods trying to 'rescue' you?

    Thanks Dan for organizing - great run! Thanks to everyone for hanging in there despite a couple -- ahem -- extra miles -- to Mtn Home ;-) Not quite the scorcher that was forecast, but still excellent swimming weather for cooling the core at Stinson. And now I have first-hand knowledge of the shuttle (will be using that again).

    Dan is a rockstar for running around to make this fun run a rockin' success.

    Hi Dan, I'm playing on mapmyhike to better understand our route. I'm missing what trails we are taking between mountain home inn and pantoll ranger station. Here are the two variations I have so far, what magic trails am I missing :)?

    • Dave R

      I agree those are the two options. I think they both end up closer to 12 than 10 though (which is fine for me, just a possible warning)?

      September 6, 2013

    • Dave R

      FYI, Not sure I will be there by 9am. So don't wait, and more importantly have a great run!

    Hi there,
    I would like to join the group run but will meet up with everyone at the Depot Cafe. Perhaps you will all arrive at around 9:30 am? I will look for you there. I will also then run with the group but might return back on the trails, an out and back trek.

  • kierstan

    Hey everyone. I'm catching a ride w David R. Btw. Bring water. Even if you never do carry it tomorrow. It's going to be a high of 91 in Marin. A lot of the trail will be exposed.

  • Drew

    Anyone driving from SF? I can supply many thanks and gas money.

    September 2, 2013

    • Stuart

      Hi Lucy. I could also use a ride if you have any more room. Will gladly contribute toll and/or gas since you have navigation covered. I'm in N. Beach as well.
