Great views and perfect Sunday distance

Stunning views! Lots of options for trails and exploring! Will be back soon!

Absolutely beautiful. We will be going back sometime in the near future.

Incredibly beautiful

Beautiful hike! The views are stunning. You get a steep hike at first and a nice downhill at the end. Reference your map as it’s easy to go off the trail. Go early too! We started at 8 am and it was perfect!

Great hike with wonderful views and some incredible Bay Area history. Not difficult but not flat by any means. A perfect hike for a sunny day in the Bay. This would be a good hike to go on and bring a small picnic with you.

Great hike. Rattlesnake crossed the path!

Absolutely loved this hike! So much to see and do. There is something for everyone. Moderate hike with amazing views.

Solid hike. Not too intense on the way to Muir beach but definitely a work out on the way back but worth it with the views. Apply sun screen very little to no shade!

- From Miwok trail to Muir beach: 3.3 miles. Out and back: 6.6 (parked on Marin drive)
- Intense work out with lots of uphills and downhills
- Views: city/north bay and coastal

Nice views, fun to explore and wasnt too hard of a hike.

Stunning, constant views, mostly of the coast. May not really be a moderate for most, more of a moderate-hard.

Such a beautiful hike. well worth the views!!! I am in no way fit.... just started hiking recently and actually found this one pretty easy.....

just hiked it yesterday. nice views, but I never did find the waterfall mentioned above.

I did this hike on my own, it was great. The weather was perfect and the views are outstanding. Totally doable, but an excellent work out.

Great trail, however I wish to do it again on a weekday because it was too crowded the closer you got to Tenessee Beach. There are various off shoots along the upper part of the hill that are much more scenic and beautiful in my opinion. Perfect hiking weather early April

Sundays are quite busy, but Mondays this trail is nearly empty. There are a lot of wildflowers and it is currently early April. beautiful trail.

You’ll park in the neighborhood then walk up a long driveway to the trail. Starts off steep, ends steep on the way back. Moderate hike overall. The fog was rolling in and laying perfectly on the canyon and when we arrived to the beach it was perfectly sunny! gotta love Mt Tams micro climates :) beautiful day!

Beautiful and relatively relaxed trail that goes inland and to the beach.

Steep climb and descent but great views

Easy hike but also easy to loose the trail.
But that’s also because I was distracted by the views. Stunning. Fun. Do it.

Amazing trail. Love the stair case and also the old base! Good for all types.

Great trail, mostly because it is so close to SF and surrounding area. An easy 20 minutes drive from SF and your in the coastal mountain ridge line. Beautiful!

Yes it’s not dirt but once you get up to the top you can choose dirt and take other trails along the ridge. Great way to spend the morning!

Pretty easy hike with nice views. Plenty of parking with public restrooms.

This is Bay Area winter running at its finest. Windy and hilly but still sunny! The views make the concrete worth the effort. The dirt trails begin after the missile area which is now unkempt and heavily graffitied.

Beautiful views and a good variety of trails to mix it up.

Gorgeous trail, Tennessee Beach is a must-see along the way. Nothing beats the view from the coast or the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks. This trail can be a thigh-burner in some areas where the elevation varies, but nothing too bad if you’re moderately in shape.
