Length: 3.4 mi • Est. 1 h 29 m
Note: As of October 2020, due to aggressive coyotes in the area Tennessee Beach closes at 5pm. Please do not feed the wildlife and if a coyote approaches, yell, wave your arms, and chase it away. This is a great route that offers beautiful views of the ocean and the rolling hills of the Tennessee Valley. A great place for trail running and a short mountain biking ride. This place is a chaparral habitat for bands of roaming coyotes and home to bobcats and deer! Show more
