Gorgeous views. Awesome beach at the end. Almost no people. A lot of picnic tables with spectacular views.

This is a great trail. It’s easy for beginners and has a beautiful views. It’s dangerous when the temperature is high or cold, but you can look the weather and make a plan. All you need to finish this trail is a lot of water and great spirit.

Really nice views, well maintained

I Originally planned to run one easy lap on the 5 mile rolling hill loop, but being that it was only 80 degrees out and overcast, went for two laps at ten miles. Great quad/hamstring/glute and calve stressing mountain trail! There were only two other people that were walking the trail. Extremely lightly trafficked!

Makes for an amazing view once you pass the hay bales and go further down towards the bridge.

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

Beautiful trail. Some very steep hills. Great for exercising! Over all a wonderful sunday morning workout.

Beautiful dirt trail leading to the coast.

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!

I’ve walked this trail many times. There are two steep climbs

Golden gate national recreational park is beautiful. If you’re looking to enjoy the nature though, don’t do this hike. You’re walking along the road almost the entire time if you follow this “trail”. Also, the lighthouse doesn’t even open until 1230, so if you’re looking to make this a part of your hike, you’ll have to go in the afternoon.

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.

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

Don’t underestimate this trail. It is intense with steep climbs which makes for a great workout.

Very short hike which yields a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito, Angel Island, Alcatraz, and San Francisco. It was a bit foggy when we ascended. It’s also very windy at the top. It took us all of 15 minutes of slow walking up a steep incline for this picturesque view

Almost all flat terrain and mostly shaded. I would consider this an easy nature stroll and with the exception of the distance, it is great for all ages. Beautiful trees, ferns, and other plants everywhere! We went on Labor Day and started at 3 pm- there were many people returning from their hike but not many people starting it at that time.

Beautiful

Beautiful hike. Its relatively moderate unless you are running the trail. Perfect distance. Not too long or short. Bring plenty of water and enjoy this gorgeous trail!!

Nice, nearby hike with one steep section. Probably best to go in the early morning and not anytime after it has rained as it would be tough on the downhill.

This was a great trail! Alot of great views. We did a camp at sky camp and hiked down this way. Beautiful!

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.

Tough with steep hills. Go in the early morning.

Easy. Classic. Lots of wildlife.

Beautiful and lightly challenging.

Gorgeous views....steep but short and well worth the climb!

I went last month and it was my life longest hike to date. It was a good workout going up and resting at Muir Beach but the trek back...9 miles out and back...thank God for my beautiful pics!
