Tennessee Valley feels like the overlooked sibling hidden between the Muir Woods watershed and the Rodeo Beach Watershed. It is Chaparral habitat for bands of roaming coyotes and home to bobcats and deer. Many cute California Quail live here, as well as Turkey Vultures and other Birds of Prey. For decades this was home base for students in the tuition-free Bay Area summer program Aim High who camped at Haypress Camp. Students who were lucky enough got to coordinate one or two group howls at night and hear the Coyote yip back. Great hiking, but better still when you have stewarded the land and consider it a home away from home.

Crowded but kinda dry without any good views. Tennessee Beach was the only nice thing about this hike but all the incline and decline was kinda pointless.

1/1/19 - an amazingly beautiful day for a New Years Day hike! This loop has some steep inclines and declines - but very doable for all ages so long your in decent health.

Great trail, however I wish to do it again on a weekday because it was too crowded the closer you got to Tenessee Beach. There are various off shoots along the upper part of the hill that are much more scenic and beautiful in my opinion. Perfect hiking weather early April

The Fox Trail section was quite steep. After that our side trip to Pirate's Cove Beach was too much of an incline for us!
