Hike the Coastal Trail from Rodeo Beach to Muir Beach

12 Miles Round Trip - 3529 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Rodeo Beach - Search Nearby - Added by Nicole Rogers

See 3 beaches in a challenging 12 mile hike along the coastal trail.

This hike has beautiful views in the Marin Headlands.

You'll find easy parking in the Rodeo Beach Parking lot if you get there early (by 8:30 am). This hike goes along the Coastal Trail which has a few steep areas as you make your way to Tennessee Beach. The Tennessee Beach has gorgeous dark brown sand.

You'll then cross that beach and make your way to Muir Beach. During this route you'll walk thru the clouds.

We journeyed along the cliff as well so be sure to be careful.

At Muir Beach, it's a bit busier and then you'll do a loop back to Rodeo Beach.

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
