  • Single track, fire road, hills, pavement

This circuit begins at sea level in the Rodeo Beach parking lot. Start running along Mitchell Road towards the entrance to the Miwok Trail. Along the climb up Miwok take the trailhead to Wolfe Ridge and head out towards Hill 88, an abandoned and overgrown radar station. At this intersection, Wolfe Ridge takes a sharp downhill into Tennessee Valley where we pick up Coastal Trail. At the top of Coastal take a well deserved break and enjoy some of the amazing views of the Pacific, Mt. Tam, Pt. Reyes, SF and, Ocean Beach.

Crossing over towards Muir Beach along the Coastal Trail is the highlight of this run. High cliffs, crashing waves, technical and groomed single track with stunning views will keep you entertained. At the next juncture of trails take a right turn up and over Fox Trail. This climb is a beast and takes you to the highest point along this circuit. Drop in to the parking area at Tennessee Valley Trailhead and run a short distance along the road and embark up Oakwood Trail. After negotiating some bridge crossings, stairs and a sharp climb on Oakwoad, you'll soon meet up with Alta Trail. A right at Alta leads us to Bobcat Trail and the coast back down to Rodeo Beach.
