15.1mi Svelte Run

Fort Cronkhite - Rodeo Beach - Search Nearby - Added by BayTrailrunners

Distance: 15.1 miles. Total elevation gain: 2740 ft. 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.

Fill your water bottles at the start. There is no water along the route

You'll love who you are when you are in Marin!

Marin County is just a little out there. As in one famous bridge away from San Francisco. And right next door to the vineyards and Napa and Sonoma. Closer than you could ever imagine to everything that's unique in this clever corner of California. Take a vacation from the typical vacation
