Marin County, CA--Sometime late in June it will become necessary to close Muir Beach through November while the parking lot and pedestrian access are realigned. During this closure businesses in the area, like the Pelican Inn, will remain open, but the beach will be closed to all but people hiking through from other areas like Tennessee Valley along the Coastal Trail. With the Muir Beach parking lot closed and all services and restrooms removed from the area it is not recommended that anyone hiking through stop at the beach for any extended period.
