Many options that can be very strenuous and short to very long hikes. We particularly like to walk up... More

A nice easy walk for out of town visitors. The trails are well marked and there are optional harder trails that take off from there. Parking is an issue, but nonetheless it worth a visit.

This was an easy walk from the parking lot to a sandy beach with some awesome cliffs. many trails branched off the road to get you into the hills and some great views. Lots of birds and wildflowers. We saw a deer grazing in the hills.

This is a fun walk for the parking lot all the way to the sea. Easy hills with slow ascents and descents. In the spring you will enjoy many wild colors

Nice trip out to the famous Tennessee Valley cove on the Pacific. Watch for wild flowers and bobcats sunning themselves.

My favorite place to hike to the beach. So quiet and peaceful. Nature at its best! It's a must see for anyone visting Mill Valley. I've been going for over 30 years and it's been my place of refuge.

Fantastic hike for the whole family to the ocean! Can be hard to park by noon on weekends. Great to pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the crashing waves on the beach while eating! Lots of room once you are on the trail and the beach...just limited in parking spots.
