The Coastal Trail offers picturesque views of the Pacific Ocean. Hike up from Muir Beach all the way to Muir Woods. From the Muir Beach parking area take the first left and continue on the Coastal Trail

I did this loop from the Muir Beach parking lot, turned right and went down to the beach, hiked up to Coastal Fire Road, Coastal Trail, and continued to the Tennessee Valley Trail. On return, I turned left and hiked up to the Fox Trail and then the Coastal Fire Road which led me back to where I started. Total distance was 6.3 miles and rated moderate. It was a great hike. I enjoyed the cool misty coastal fog and wind.

You can no longer do this trail as it is mapped here. Going clockwise, the trail North along the ridge from the Tennessee Valley Beach Overlook is closed. You have to double back and take the Coastal Ridge Fire Road about a half mile back from the beach. If you go counter clock wise, you won't end up at a dead end and will go right past the closed trail.

Its a great hike. We started at Tennessee Valley Trailhead and did counter-clockwise. The Ocean view was awesome. Most of the trail has no shade at all.
