As we head into Fall, we’re getting out on the trail with one of our favorite guides Laurent Langoisseur from our Alps team! He’ll be leading a free guided trek on the Tennessee Valley trail system in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area on October 5, 2019. The group will meet at 9am in the Tennessee Valley parking lot and then head north on the Miwok Trail and southwest on the Coyote Ridge Trail. From there we’ll head west on the Coastal Trail, south on the Pirates Cove Trail, and loop back to east via the Coastal and Valley Trails to the parking lot. It’s about 7 miles and 3-3.5 hours total hiking with a stop for lunch along the way.

It’s an incredibly scenic route and you’ll see birds soaring overhead, deer roaming in the tall grass, and possibly even a bobcat. It’s also a great way to find camaraderie on the trail—and in the company of a distinguished guide. We invite you to join us for this beautiful hike, just 20 minutes north of San Francisco.

Where: Meet at the Tennessee Valley Parking Lot

When: October 5, 2019

Time: 9am-1pm

Cost: Free!

RSVP: Please email rsvp@mtsobek.com to join the hike.
