Tennessee Cove, 2012 (arch no longer present as of 2013)
Tennessee Cove is an embankment off the Pacific Ocean in Marin County, California. It is named after the "S.S. Tennessee", a steamship that ran aground near here on March 6, 1853. All 550 passengers climbed safely onto the beach, and fourteen chests of gold were salvaged before the ship broke up.
The cove is a 1.8-mile (2.9 km) hike from the parking lot near the end of Tennessee Valley Road.
