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.

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!
