Hike the Coastal Trail from Rodeo Beach to Muir Beach
Rate this Adventure San Francisco › Rodeo Beach
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.

Signs at the trail head for the Tabor Trail state it is 1.1 miles long. That is much shorter than the actual 1.8 miles my GPS put it at. The trail sign also claims it is wheelchair accessible.
