A beautiful stretch of pristine California Coastland, this hike leads you along the bluffs of the Marin Headlands. The trail can be steep in sections, but the stunning views make it worthwhile. Start from the Muir Beach parking area and take the coastal trail south.

Muir Beach's trails are pretty epic. Drone footage that I took: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhoNPYTFIEg

Beautiful hike with uninterrupted views on the coastline. Be prepared for changing weather (fog, cold winds...). Also, the lighthouse was opened to the public from 12:30, so a 9:30 start from Muir Beach is enough to arrive there just on time.

Very noce scenery. On Rodeo beach you experience the californian coast to the fullest. The lighthouse gives you amazing views of the ocean pounding the coastline. Easy hike
