Trail/Park Description:
Marin Headlands is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area which surrounds Golden Gate Bridge roughly. On this, our first hike, we wanted to get an overall feel to the Marin Headlands area with a short hike. As we had birders in the group, a walk around the Rodeo Lagoon was of interest. A good starting point is the Visitors Center. From there a number of trails are possible but we opted to hike to the end of Tennessee Point via the Lagoon Trail, as this made for some nice views taking in the lagoon, beach, and cliff areas.
