Tan Bark Trail and Fire Road Loop

Tan Bark Trail & Fire Road Loop Professional Review and Guide

"Choose between a 6.6-mile out-and-back hike via the Tan Bark Trail or a 5.6-mile loop that traverses the Tan Bark Trail and Fire Road back to Highway 1. The 3.3-mile Tan Bark Trail is a longer, more scenic route to the Tin House and is better graded than the wide, steep Fire Road. That said, it starts lower and thus climbs more than 2000 feet versus the Fire Road’s 1580-foot climb. The 2.2-mile Fire Road is a steep climb past sunny hilltops with coastal views. The following description starts on the Tan Bark Trail, ascends to the Tin House, then descends the Fire Road to Highway 1."
