Event description

Description

Join us for a pleasant "saunter" to the beach on one of the Bay Area's iconic trails.

Not too many years ago, this natural landscape nearly succumbed to a sprawl development named Marincello. But long before that, the valley was known as Elk Valley, and the beach at the end of the trail was called Indian Cove. Then came that fateful day in 1853. There lies the tale of the wreck of the SS Tennessee, her fool-hardy captain, half-crazed doctor, chest of gold, and missing "keyhole" in the cliff.

LEADER
Ken Lavin

TOTAL DISTANCE
A moderate hike of 4 miles on a mostly level trail.

WHERE TO MEET
We'll assemble near the trailhead for the Tennessee Valley Trail at the end of Tennessee Valley Road.

From US 101 in Marin County, take the CA 1/Shoreline Highway exit. After about 0.5 mile, turn left onto Tennessee Valley Road. Go about 1.5 miles to the parking lot at the end of the road.
