Really gorgeous views of the coast on a clear day. Steeper than I expected and a decent workout for a short hike. The dirt can get slippery in some places, so walking sticks are a good idea.

Great hike to bring people from out of town. It’s easy & gorgeous! Makes for great memorable pics.

This was a quick down and back hike .8 miles each way. My dad and I took a long lunch break on a Friday for this route. going in the middle of the day made for easier parking and it wound up a perfect break from the work day!

This is such a gorgeous trail - right along the ocean and very few people! 20 minutes from the city

At first you go uphill for about 1/2 a mile and then you start heading downhill. You end up at a beach which is BEAUTIFUL! Coming back the road is steep, but not difficult.

In between highway and great coastal views. Can get very windy at times.

Great with kiddos or visitors.

Love this hike, and I’m biased because it’s where my husband proposed. ❤️

Took a hike here at midday - great hike. Very short, but nice to get away for a little while.

Good trail

Beautiful, wooded trail in the city but because there are so many intersecting routes that meet this particular, somewhat confusing, one it was difficult to stay on course and cumbersome to keep checking my phone on such narrow walkways.

I love this easy hike ! The birding is really good I saw a blue heron here last week.
You can access several trailheads from here as well.

We did this hike last year and loved it. It went a lot faster than I expected. The cross at the top was fun to see in person (and not just in Dirty Harry). A great SF stroll.

enter and exit with Sunshine but in the middle of the trail there might be frost and slight rain so the road is a little muddy.

Great hike. Easy to follow, not many people, well kept trail. Very eerie while it’s foggy which is pretty cool - makes you feel like you’re in the clouds.

First time trail running and this trail was perfect!

Nike Missile base is just a dirt patch

A great city escape; trail is narrow and temperatures can vary quite a bit as you walk around Mt. Sutro, but still a must do trail

Easy trail with a couple of steep switchbacks but definitely a beginner trail. There’s lots of poison oak, runners, dogs, and bikers, but the trail gets deep enough into the forest to provide an urban escape with mist and silence punctuated by bird calls and creaking trees.

Absolutely beautiful! We had the trail all to ourselves from beginning to end! The efforts are well worth the views and as a beginning hiker, it was a perfect challenge to start kicking it up a notch.

Easy walk down to the beach. You can book to camp there too. Finding parking on top was a pain since there’s very limited space. There was no swing when I went.

A beautiful hike in the.middle of the city! This trail really makes you feel like you are out of the city and out in the forest where you can only hear the sound of trees in the wind. I went in July and there were so many cherry trees and plum trees with fruit. Def recommend!! Lots of mountain bikers like to rise here.

Great hike!! I’ve done it twice now and love it for a solid work out. Be aware that it’s actually 6.6 miles roundtrip, not 5.3. Also, the first 2-3 miles on the way back from Muir beach is almost entirely up hill... something to keep in mind. Highly recommend if you want a good work out.

Beautiful trail and views! Very steep in some sections. There’s a sign just up the trail a bit which has a map showing a simple trail system, but it seemed there was only one “official” trail. Maybe that’s part of the trail restoration happening. I went later in the day and was the only person out there.

Great two hour hike with incredible views of the bay at the top. Took a detour to check out the houses on Wolfback Ridge, and another to take in the stellar view at the little cutoff in the middle of the SCA trail. Don’t miss that one! Note that the map is wrong, there’s no Julian Trail from Bunker Road to Rodeo Valley Trail. Looks like it never even existed either.

Such a beautiful hike. It’s has some good hills so be ready for that. But it is worth it!

The most amazing views! Walking down is the easy part because it’s all downhill but going back up is a little more challenging! I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

I can't believe it is right in the middle of the city. It's absolutely beautiful. You feel like you're deep in the forest as soon as you enter. The trees, flowers, and the smell will calm you the entire time.
