Hiking & birding around Marin Headlands

Sarah & I had a lovely pair of mini-hikes on Dec 16 in the Marin Headlands, ahead of an incoming storm.


Tennessee Valley Trail

Our first hike was to Tennessee Valley, a lovely short hike that we hadn’t done in over a year, despite the trailhead being only a 15-minute drive over the Golden Gate. Brewer’s Blackbirds and Golden-crowned Sparrows foraged in the parking lot, but it was otherwise pretty quiet. The first quarter-mile of the trail was rather blustery, but things calmed down once we descended into the valley proper.
