Take the Tennessee Valley trail all the way to Muir Beach. After a stroll through the headland valleys, nothing is better than dipping your toes into the cool Pacific Caution, Dogs are not allowed on certain trails

This is a pleasant stroll through relatively flat paths that ends opens up to the ocean. Incredible view, beautiful expansive land, and perfect experience for an hour or two for young and old.

Great rolling hills along the coast with refreshing views of the water. Nice diversity of plants and wildflowers on the trail.

Beautiful coastal views with amazing wildflowers. Careful of the long climbs.

From the staging area we hiked up to the Tennessee Valley trail, turned right onto the Fox Trail, continued straight onto the Coastal Trail.  On return we turned left onto Pirates Cove Trail and went down to Pirates Cove.  We went back on Pirates Cove Trail and onto Coastal Trail, continued to Tennessee Valley Trail.  We turned right to visit Tennessee beach. From the beach, we hiked back to the trailhead. Total distance 7.1 miles with 1,503 feet of elevation. The weather was perfect. We saw the SF skyline and the beautiful coastline. Go early for good parking. Hiking poles are also recommended.

Loved this hike! First time doing it so it took about two hours because of all the times we stopped to enjoy the views. It can probably be done in less than 1.5 hours with a steady pace. Moderate and a little steep at times but it's nothing an average hiker can't handle. You can see a little bit of the SF skyline on a clear day. Got to the parking lot around 10:45am on a weekday and there was plenty of parking. By the time we left around 1:15pm the lot was full! Highly recommend it.
