Hidden gem . Note the location on trip advisor did not take you to the head of the trail. Need to drive a little further down the road and will come to a parking lot with bathroom (Have attached a pic so you know you are in the right place) We loved the lower Tennessee trail down to the beach . The beach at the end of the trail was amazing . Highly recommend!

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 cliff next to beach for a nice view.

I found this trail based on tripadvisor reviews and am glad I did. I'm not super athletic and it was a good distance and not to strenuous and strenuous enough that it felt like a hike. One tip: you will come to a fork where there is a smaller footpath to the left and a bigger trail going uphill to the right. If you want a less strenuous (but less visually appealing) path take the smaller path on the left. What I did was take the path on the hill going to the water then the small footpath going back. There are some great smells on this walk and at 4:00-6:00 on a weekday it wasn't too crowded. I loved the little black sand beach. There is one bench for sitting at the beach.

Walking, running or mountain biking it's a lovely track to the beach with nice views and moderate people traffic on bicycles and with strollers. There are restrooms at the trailhead and halfway down. Enjoy!

This is one of the gems of Mill Valley and Marin County. A mile of hiking will give you sweeping views of mountains and ocean. One of my friends call the mountain ridges the “spine of a dragon.” I agree. Green, scaly, and larger than life. The ocean is windy and wild. Be sure to climb up the steep steps to the military bunker where the the winds will blow your hair back.

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 you have a great chance at seeing wildlife. Deer are a given, hawks are up above, and in the evenings you are likely to see and certainly hear great horned owls. The beach itself is dramatic and beautiful, although I would classify it as more of a strolling along the edge of the surf type beach than a swimming beach. Take the two mile walk all the way to the beach and you will be very happy and feel rewarded and renewed.

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 time. This trailhead is very busy because of its proximity to the city and people enjoy coming here for the killer views. Weather here could be very tricky, so better bring extra layers of clothing. If you want to skip the light hike , you can divert your climb to Rodeo Beach or John Muir Beach which are more moderate/strenuous hike. The best time to come here to avoid the crowd is during weekdays. During summer, drive a little early to get a parking spot, parking fills up really quick during summer season. I already hike this trail on 4 seasons several times and I love it and will continue to do it.

Great hike! You can adapt the distance and degree of difficulty to personal preference based on your trail selection. The destination---the ocean beach---is always spectacular. The trail is fairly well maintained.
