This trek was inspired by the custom trek we designed for Runner’s World magazine (see the June, 2009 article, “Breathtaking”). The trek traverses the beautiful trails of Marin County and Mount Tamalpais, “arguably the country’s best trail running”. Of course, these same trails are lovely to hike as well! You will see and experience Sausalito, Muir Woods National Monument, and end at the edge of the Point Reyes National Seashore park. Each night you will stay in premier lodging, ranging from charming country inns to boutique hotels, and have opportunities for excellent dining. It is also possible to customize this trek, adding a day at the beginning and starting in San Francisco, or a day at the end, running through Pt. Reyes and finishing in Inverness.
Day 1: Sausalito. Start your vacation in the historic village of Sausalito. Your luxury boutique hotel and spa is on the waterfront, where you can enjoy the artists’ studios, cafes, and restaurants of this charming town. Dinner this evening can be at a Michelin recognized restaurant. Hiking/running today: No planned hikes. Your personal Trail Guide will suggest sights to see.
Day 2: Sausalito to Muir Beach. Hike/run across the beautiful coastal hills in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area to the village of Muir Beach. Enjoy spectacular views of the rugged Pacific Ocean and the San Francisco skyline. Take time to relax on the sandy beach when you arrive in town. Tonight’s lodging is a classic English Tudor Inn with an elegant salon for guests and a Pub reminiscent of Stratford-on-Avon where you’ll enjoy classic pub fare paired with excellent local and international wines and beers. Hiking today: 9 miles (14 km) with 2300 feet (700 m) of elevation gain and loss.
Day 3: Muir Beach to Mount Tamalpais. Hike onto Mount Tamalpais taking in the dramatic views of the Pacific Ocean. Descend into Muir Woods National Monument enjoying the ancient and magical redwood forest. Ascend through fern and redwood canyons to your destination: a romantic inn with beautiful views from every room! Relax on the expansive deck with other hikers and runners comparing notes. You’ll enjoy a delicious three course California cuisine dinner right at your mountaintop inn. Hiking today: 9 miles (14 km) with 2100 feet (640 m) of elevation gain and 1100 feet (335 m) of elevation loss.
Day 4: Mount Tamalpais to Olema/Point Reyes. A transport will leave you at Limantour Beach, in Point Reyes National Seashore. Hike along the beach, then up into the National Park. Finish your hike in the small historic town of Olema. A rustic yet luxurious lodge welcomes you with expansive lawns and lazy Adirondack chairs to rest after a day of hiking. Tonight’s dinner is a real treat – fresh organic and artisan foods from famous West Marin dairies and farms prepared in an award winning local restaurant. Hiking today: 9 miles (14 km) with 1300 feet (400 m) of elevation gain and 1100 feet (335 m) of elevation loss.
