The Coastal Trail on a clear day is magical. This whole area is a runner's / hiker's paradise. I actually saw a bobcat on the Bobcat Trail!

I met a friend here for a long walk. It's a good trail and not too crowded. Not the most scenic walk, but good nonetheless.

I like hiking this trailhead when I don't have a lot of energy. It is a 4 mile hike back and forth. You end up in a beach, set up a tent or shield for a relaxing stay. Reading a book, taking a nap or playing in the water are just the few activities you can do to enjoy the... More

This trail is amazing in the springtime. There is a huge variety of wildflowers as you walk down this trail to its conclusion, beautiful Tennessee Cove. Arrive early for parking and dress in layers for changing weather.

Tennessee Valley is accessible to all, whether walker or experienced hiker. Newly installed ADA bathrooms are available adjacent to parking lot. The undulating trail starts as asphalt, but soon bifurcates to delight the boots of hikers. Strollers and bikes can share the paved roadway. The route is lined with mature trees and tall grasses. You're also likely to see bobcat,... More

Tennessee Valley offers numerous hikes from the trailhead. The hike to the beach is a beautiful and gentle hike. A more robust hike is possible both the left and right of the parking area (marincello trail to the left facing the ocean or the Miwok trail to the right). By the way, I live here and visit at least once... More

This is my favorite hike in the area because you pass a lagoon and end up at the beach. It's nearly two miles in each direction, and even if you take the higher road, it's an easy hike with a big reward at the end. For more exercise, you can the trail that branches off to the south (to Rodeo... More

I just realized that in all the times I've been to Tennessee Valley, I have never actually been to the beach. Instead, my runs spread out from the valley in all directions on the amazing trails that start or pass through here. My favorite trails include: * Following coastal trail North to Muir Beach, passing the amazing Pirate's Cove along... More

Gorgeous hike to the ocean! Bring a picnic lunch to eat at the end and a camera. Views are unreal! Parking is tough if you don't get there early on weekends. Also parents be careful with letting your kids near water on right side. When the tide comes in they can get stuck over there and worse swept out to... More
