This is what folks come to N California for...the unique terrain, beach, cliffs, sand, mountains, ocean...all right next to each other...all within easy driving from SF.

Parking can be a bit difficult but the path to ocean is scenic and beautiful. There are a lot of hiking options, both short and long. If one feels ambitious, she can hike over to Stinson Beach. The variety of trails makes this a wonderful choice.

Even children like this hike. Pack a picnic to eat at the beach. Even if it's foggy the hike is lovely.

If you are looking for an easy, hour or so hike with chance to see varied wildlife and wade at the beach, this is for you.About 3.5 miles out and back on a nearly flat and wide path (can go one way on the lower trail to see more wildlife). If you want to add some spice, climb up the... More

Beautiful views whether you take the high trail or just hike down to the beautiful beach. Many options for the casual walker or serious hiker and options for short or long and more rigorous hikes. Always head over to this trailhead when visiting in Marin County.

So, I wasnt as blown away as everyone else was. The hike was pretty, and the beach was neat, but I won't return.

The kids loved the trail the ends at the beach. I prefer the coastal hike that follows the ridge and takes your breath away with the views. Bring water!

Having lived in Marin County for most of my life, Tennessee Valley is one of my go-to places to enjoy either a walk to the beach or a bicycle ride to the beach or onto the Coast Trail. The trails provide immense variety and beauty and the flowers right now add even more color to the already spectacular landscape. And... More

A lovely spot at the start of a gradual hike to the ocean, thru pastures and meadows. Gentle grade and lovely views

Tennessee Valley Trail head is an easy hike (more of a walk, really) that leads to a beautiful cove. I've been here several times- it's close to San Francisco and has that great rugged, rocky coastline that I think of when I think "North Coast." It's a quiet, relaxing place- not too crowded usually since it's a hike-in beach. Great... More
