Muir Beach Hike
While most hikes make you work for the view, this 7-mile Muir Beach Hike out-and-back boasts non-stop, killer views of the California coastline as the trail rises and falls consistently over coastal topography. I love taking Priscilla on this hike because it is not only a workout for me but for her too and she sleeps for like 4 days after haha.
When the weather is clear, the views from the trail are breathtaking, as the coastline drops precipitously into the seemingly endless Pacific. Although not all days are crystal clear, rolling fog is very common, however, on these days the trail becomes a bit more intimate and turns into a mystical experience. Regardless, the trail is a quintessential way to experience California’s coast.
