At Stinson Beach there are two beach wheelchairs located in the central parking lot. Due to recent storm activity the safest access point on to the beach is located at the Northernmost entry in the North Parking Lot. This entry provides a smooth transition from the parking lot to the beach. Dogs, other than service animals who are performing a service, are not allowed on the beach.
At Muir Beach there are two beach wheelchairs located in a storage shed attached to the restroom building. To access the beach cross over the pedestrian bridge, turn right onto the accessible trail. Where the accessible trail ends, beach mats begin. Proceed with caution on the beach mats, the dunes are steep. Dogs are allowed on the beach on leash or under voice control.
Rodeo Beach provides two beach wheelchairs which are located in lockers adjacent to the accessible parking spaces. Once you retrieve the chairs you will proceed down an accessible trial which leads to a pedestrian bridge, past the bridge are seasonal beach mats. The ocean waves at this beach can be dangerous, proceed with caution.
At Baker Beach there are two beach wheelchairs located in the North Parking Lot near the entrance to Battery Chamberlin. The beach access point located next to the Battery Chamberlin entrance provides entry that is approximately 8% in grade.
