Tennessee Valley is in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area five miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge. At the foot of Mt. Tamalpais, the Tennessee Valley is nestled between rolling hills covered in wildflowers with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean.
The beach is a popular destination for families on sunny days as is Muir Beach

Walking the Walk
We'll head down the Tennessee Valley Trail to the Fox Trail (second trail on the right),
up the hill to the Coastal Fire Trail, and down to Muir Beach. Back along the Pacific Coast
Trail and down to Pirates Cove for the meeting.
Up another hill and back to the Tennessee Valley Trail.
From there you can head to the parking lot or take an extra mile loop to
Tennessee Valley Beach.
Know Before You Go
Depending on the weather, it could be foggy, cold, windy, or sunny, so bring sunscreen and dress in layers.
Parking is free, but the lot can fill up fast on nice days so you may need to park along
the road and walk to the trailhead.
