Very misty and windy when we went so can't comment on the views but a nice easy little hike not far from San Francisco. Would come back on a clearer day for a quick afternoon stroll.

Great view

San Bruno Mountain End to End
Start at the end of Hoffman street in Daly City. Go up and hike along the ridge trail towards Brisbane. As you near the end start looking down the Brisbane side for what looks like a white water tower along Arthur Drive and Beatrice Road.

Take a lyft or head towards the main plaza to take a bus.

Relatively easy hike with spectacular, albeit often hazy panoramic views of the Bay Area. An abundance of California wildflowers pepper the landscape. Clouds steam in over the mountain, and from the peak they seem close enough to reach out and touch. Can be quite cold, especially when fog rolls in and wind picks up. Watch out for poison oak.

*** Leave no trace *** Please take back water bottles and trash on all trails.
-You can drive to the top and do the Ridge trail. It's popular with trail runners and tourists.
-The Summit loop is used by sightseers and trail runners.
-You can start from the main entrance and go up Dairy trail to Ridge Trail and come back down.
If you like elevation you can go up Bayside Boulevard and hike the Ridge Trail, into the Summit loop and come back for about 9 miles.
-Ridge trail has really nice views of the SF Bay area

Went on the Ridge trail trek. Good little 2.5 mile trail down and another 2.5 miles back. Great views of San Francisco when the weather is clear. Not very crowded considering the views it provides.

I start from Fire Road 2. It starts off Hillside Blvd, I then move to the trail and which leads back to the fire road to the ridge trail. It gets a bit steep and loose rocks make for an interesting decent but I love it. Amazing views of the bay area.
