Tennessee Valley Trail - Search Nearby - Added by Pascual Dutton

A short hike with varying topography that ends at a beautiful beach.The perfect outing for the casual hiker.It’s easy to explore adjoining trails.The trail is kid/family friendly.

The Tennessee Valley trail is leisurely 3.4 mile roundtrip hike that turns around at Tennessee Valley Cove. Along the way, you’ll hike past shrublands, wetlands, and a lake before you get to a cool little secluded beach that many people picnic at.

This is probably the easiest to access, and most popular, hike just north of the Golden Gate Bridge. It’s a perfect option for those without a lot of time, or if you’re looking to stretch your legs a bit without getting crazy. It’s just long enough to feel like you’ve earned that post-hike brunch at The Dipsea Café .

There are a number of nice bathrooms at the start and end of the trail, along with picnic tables and drinking water.

Easy Hike

Easy and wonderful hike. Definitely a hike for all ages. When you get to the first fork going left is easy flat ground perfect for people with little one.

Nice Day Hike

Really easy day hike with a great end. Beach is pretty small but worth checking out. Go early in the day before 1 to beat the crowd.

Breezy Coastal Hike

You're surrounded by mountains and lush green scenery on this hike. Definitely check out the coastal hike and you're in for a fun rock scramble past pirates cove. We hiked in mid afternoon and it wasn't too hot or cold. We welcomed the light coastal wind to cool us off!

You'll love who you are when you are in Marin!

Marin County is just a little out there. As in one famous bridge away from San Francisco. And right next door to the vineyards and Napa and Sonoma. Closer than you could ever imagine to everything that's unique in this clever corner of California. Take a vacation from the typical vacation
