2025 Shoreline Highway, Muir Beach, CA 94965 (See Map Below)
Fast Forward SummaryTM: Slide Ranch is a working 134-acre farm and educational center about 1.5 miles (2.5 km.) north of Muir Beach. The ranch is surrounded by the cluster pof national parks that collectively form the GGNRA, and multiple popular hiking trails cross the property, a key part of the plan to create the educational center within the GGNRA in 1970. The Ranch provides day camps and educational programs where kids get the chance to work on a real, operating farm, learning both traditional skills and important life lessons. Muir Beach gets its mail from Sausalito and has no post office of its own, and Sausalito and Muir Beach share the 94965 Zip Code.
It’s about a 10 mile (16 km) drive on a narrow, well-traveled state highway over the same mountain ridge that is home to Muir Woods to get to Slide Ranch from Sausalito, and the trip takes about 30 minutes in light traffic.
