We meet in Old Mill Park near downtown Mill Valley, where we start our walking exploration of Marin's magical redwood forest. Following quiet backroads and footpaths, we visit quiet groves of ancient redwood trees and follow spring-fed creeks to natural pools and cascading falls. In this peaceful forest, unique to the northern California and southern Oregon coastal region, the sequoia sempervirens soar hundreds of feet into the sky, providing an unequaled nature experience at base of mighty Mt. Tamalpais. Along the way, you learn about the coastal redwoods' amazing ecology and their clever adaptations for survival over many millions of years. It is a remarkable escape into nature on the slopes of beautiful Mt. Tam.

Up to three guests per walk can meet me in Sausalito 45 minutes before the start time, where we will shuttle to Mill Valley's Old Mill Park (by advance arrangement only. Return shuttle to Sausalito included.) Weekend ferry service from SF to Sausalito has resumed. Guests need to catch the 10:40AM Golden Gate ferry from the terminal behind SF's Ferry Building (foot of Market St.) Ferry arrives Sausalito at 11:10AM.

If you need another start time, please contact me via Airbnb direct message or e-mail at sanfranciscocoastwalk@gmail.com. This refreshing walk is also ideal for groups and corporate team building outings!

I grew up just over the hill from Muir Woods in Mill Valley. Mt. Tam and the redwood forests were a playground for myself and my childhood pals. Years later, I founded a nature walking company, Coastal Walkers, focusing on the region's abundance of nature trails and scenic coastal spots. My routes are uncrowded and peaceful, a wonderful way to experience northern California nature and the primeval forests of the ancient redwoods.

Note: Up to two guests per walk can meet me in Sausalito 45 minutes before the start time and shuttle in my vehicle to Mill Valley. Return to Sausalito included. Advance arrangement for this shuttle is required.

Her skal du være

We meet in Mill Valley's Old Mill Park, just 20-30 minutes drive north of San Francisco. The town is nestled at the foot of Mt. Tamalpais, the locals' favorite peak. We stroll into an ancient redwood forest, following a fern-lined creek and hidden paths on this magical hike into the natural heart of Marin County. Note: If the walk is booked full and you can meet us in downtown Mill Valley, please contact me and we will be able to accommodate you.

We had such a great time hiking with Ben! Ben is very knowledgeable about the local area and fun to talk to. What a nice guy! The view is beautiful, too. We are grateful for joining Ben's trip; otherwise, we would have missed lots of nice little things along the trail.

I selected this as a gift experience for my husband to end/ kick off the new year. Exceeded my expectations!!! Ben is a great storyteller (facts and stories!) with an organized, relaxed approach that made my family feel welcome. My 11-year-old son loves being in nature, Ben supported his curiosity and made him feel truly welcome. Beautiful hike! Full 3 hours of WOW!

Thank you Ben! This was a perfect family outing for me, my wife and our 11yr old son. Experiencing the hills, creeks, and redwoods with a local was a real treat. Ben knows all the good photo spots (and tricks)! Thanks for making us feel like locals in such a beautiful place.

Ben is a super amazing host, he was very knowledgeable about the area, the flora and fauna and shared some remarkable facts about Mill Valley and overall Marin. The trails were super amazing, my nine year old trekked with us all the way.

Ben was exceptional. Even on the way to the hike he explained and shared about the area. It was fascinating. This hike is marvelous and you learn so much. Ben is extremely knowledgeable, charismatic and kind. The hike is a comfortable pace and truly magical to experience. So many wonderful pictures. We would have never gotten a full appreciation for the area without Ben as our guide. Highly recommend. Ben built not just an adventure but a memory. Should we be in the area no doubt we will reach out to Ben again.

I now see with a new set of eyes thanks to Bens amazing 3 hours with the Redwoods. I loved this experience. I learned new things and gained a deeper appreciation for the things I already knew. Thank you Ben!
