“Enjoy a beautiful loop climbing out of Tennessee Valley and ripping down to the beach.”— philip watkins
Continue riding along a fire road across the ridge, climbing up the Miwok Trail. Cross the street and then turn left to descend the tight and fun switchbacks of Diaz Ridge. You'll be facing the ocean during most of your descent. Diaz Ridge can be slightly technical, rocky, and tight at times.
Take a break and enjoy the ocean breeze at Muir Beach or ride out to Muir Woods and check out the trees before climbing back over the ridge and into Tennessee Valley.
