Fantastic views of the Northern California coastline including Muir Beach and Slide Ranch.

The Owl Trail runs between Slide Ranch and the Muir Beach Overlook and is a great way to take in the breathtaking views, flora and fauna of the Northern California coast. 

The easiest way to access the trail is to park at the Muir Beach Overlook and to take the trail down to Slide Ranch and then back.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

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
