Tennessee Valley

Just outside of Mill Valley is the most amazing family hike/walk that you could ever imagine - Tennessee Valley. I was introduced to this lovely place about ten years ago when I first moved to San Francisco. I will never forget the first time I took the walk down this breathtaking valley only to end up at an even more breathtaking site, the ocean. The walk in is very short and mellow - perfect for kids. Once there the small beach has plenty of places to picnic and explore. For the more adventuresome there are additional trails leading up the valley hills that will take you to any number of places and views. Still to this day as we take the much longer drive in from Sacramento I start to get overly excited as we head up the windy road to the trailhead. This place never gets old and is always a great getaway from everyday life. I will worn you though It does get crowded on the weekends. But with that being said even on the busiest of days once you get past the headache of parking and onto the trail the crowds seem to thin out and you don't even notice all of the others around.

The trail in is wide and well maintained for strollers
A great spot for picnics
