HikingGreat!No shade

Nice trail. First part of the trail is relatively steep. The remainder is all downhill. You can add a bunch of other trails to this loop if you want a longer route.

First 1.5 miles is steep! The climb earns you great views and an easy descent for the last 2.5 miles.

Nice and simple loop, starts with a pretty steep uphill climb but definitely worth the view. Very very crowded and the second half is on a concrete road which isn’t very pleasant in my opinion.

I did this counter clockwise starting up fox trail. It was a steep climb up - had to walk but then ride down was nice. wide trail, no single track though.

Good trail with nice views at the top. Initial climb is pretty steep. Almost everyone wore a mask. Noticeable crowds on the Tennessee valley trail, but not many people on the other trails.

This is a great “getting back into hiking” trail. You get a solid climb early on the hike, with ample space and opportunity to stop and catch your breath. Then once you top out a mile or so in, you’re rewarded with a lovely view of the coast and a smooth descent the rest of the way.

Woke up on a warm Sunday morning and decided to head out to Tennessee Valley in Marin for cooler temperatures. Unfortunately so did a lot of others -- the parking was overflowing down the street and onto the roadway shoulders by the time we got there at 10:30 in the morning. Rather than walk the main trail with the crowds we made a left turn at the Fox Trail and went up the hill until we found the Coast Fire Road. Heavy mist blew past us under a constant, bracing wind, and the higher we went the less we could see around us. But it was definitely cooler than hiking in the hot sun elsewhere! Eventually looped back down to the Tennessee Valley Trail and started heading back for the car. The wind was at our back on the main trail so it wasn't so bad. estimated our hike was going to be somehwere around 3.5 miles so I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was 4.7 miles, and could've been more like 5.5 miles if we had circled around to the beach. Next time!
