SATURDAY

A great hike

‘Hawk hideout’:
Dip into the backpacking experience via a short hike to a surprisingly secluded and often overlooked campsite in the Marin Headlands. Hawk Camp is 2.5 miles from the popular Tennessee Valley parking lot, and the only road leading to it is a wide dirt one intended for hikers, bikers and equestrians — not vehicles. Hawk Camp has only three sites, all with distant ocean views. [Visit WeekendSherpa.com to sign up for email about getting outdoors in Northern California.]
