We really enjoyed hiking this trail. The trail is in great shape and is easy to follow. We saw harbor seals and sea otters. We enjoyed the amazing ocean views as well as the sections through the woods. Fabulous weather and the trail wasn't too crowded.

Great trail, although the mud made it a bit challenging (my own fault for going the day after a big storm). Waterfalls were gorgeous as were the views. I went up on Davis and down on Dipsea - when I come back to do it again I’ll go in the opposite direction.

Conditions were great on the trail despite all the rain in the past few days.. just a little muddy at parts. On the way there was a part of the road that was flooded but it wasn't so high. The rain made the Steep Ravine part amazing, because it was gushing with water. My favorite part was the open view of the ocean and San Francisco city, as soon as you get out of the red woods on the Matt Davis trail going down. We took our time, made a few stops and were walking at an easy pace and it took us 3.5 hrs.

This is so awesome. Creeks, water falls, ferns hillside pastures, views. Just awesome

Really enjoyed hiking up the stairs under these huge trees and around the streams. Quite scenic. Was a great day!

Crowded, nice walk and views. Some trails not shown on the maps are not open to the public and they’re fun to explore.

Definitely challenging but worth it for the workout. Bad knees not a good idea as pretty much of trail is a significant incline with no shade. Totally ignore closure signs for rocky ridge if you hike trails were fine, I’ve hiked worse. About 2 hours up with snack breaks and pics at 2 miles and 50 min down at 1.92 miles.

Great trail, went up Davies and back down on the ravine. A little muddy but not bad or dangerous. This is one trail I take all visitors on.

def recommend even in winter. regardless if it has been storming the day before the trail is climbeable. the falls were amazing due to recent rain activity. lush, pretty and plenty of friendly hikers.

One of my favorite trail at Mt Tamalpais State Park.

Absolutely love this hike! One of my favorites.

I love this hike. I’ve probably done it 100 times over the years. I noticed a couple of the reviews mentioned shoes, specifically wearing hiking shoes, which I wholeheartedly agree with for both safety and comfort. Also, the weather can vary greatly from the back side to the front rocky ridge.

Really good hike for Spring! Most of the climb is in the first 3.5 miles, and it provides an excellent, less crowded backdoor to Mission Peak. The hike down from Monument peak through the Agua Caliente Trail is a real treat, with excellent views of the city. The only downside is the trails can get quite muddy right after rains.

This remains one of my favorite hikes in the Bay Area. I usually start at Pantoll Ranger Station, but on my most recent trip, I started at Stinson Beach and completed this in the opposite direction suggested: up Matt Davis and down Steep Ravine and Dipsea. The trail is a "best of" of hikes in the Bay Area in that you get a bit of everything: grassy fields with expansive views; redwoods; small streams amid forests of canyon oaks and eucalyptus; and, of course, Stinson Beach itself.

Great walk. Somehow in hilly SF, there are a lot of flat nature hikes and walks. This one has more incline which is nice. I suggest walking there and back rather than walking the loop so you can enjoy the coastal breathtaking views instead of the road. We decided to not turnaround or take the loop and instead we kept walking to Baker Beach, then through the Presidio and finally into the Marina for lunch. It took about 2 hours 15 mins or 7 miles and my Fitbit recorded I burned 780 calories!

It was a blast and we were exhausted after, but I couldn’t believe all the fantastic views we had! After, we Lyfted back to our car, but we could have Scooted or Jump Biked because the ride was through the Presidio and neighborhood streets. Excellent trek!

Fun little spot to take the kids to play on a warm day.

Beautiful views of ocean and bridge and lots of fun landmarks to see. We did this hike as the loop, part of which is the road, and if we did it again, would stick to an out and back on the coastal trail- this is where the best views were and felt more like a hike (vs. a walk along the road). Detour to labyrinth/beach was worth the stairs!

It's more a walk than a hike. The first part is quite beautiful along the stream with redwood trees and ferns lining the path.

Great hike to complete in the morning! I imagine foot traffic picks up after 10-11am, as I noticed larger groups and families starting their hike while I was ending mine. I started at the Dipsea Trailhead, continued onto Steep Ravine and climbed down via Matt Davis. Good mix of shaded/open areas. I especially enjoyed the ocean and city views on the Matt Davis Trail. You could complete this trail multiple ways depending on where you park. I originally wanted to park at Stinson Beach, but the parking lot was closed, I'm assuming due to the government shut down. Instead, I took the risk and parked in a drop off zone next to the trailhead. I learned there is another parking lot at Pantoll Road, at the campground, so that's another option if Stinson's lot is closed. If you park at Pantoll, you could climb down via Matt Davis and hike back up via Dipsea & Ravine. Alternatively, you could hike down via Ravine/Dipsea and hike back up on Matt Davis. Overall, it's a nice Marin hike.

Went with my family of 5 and it was very doable. There were 2 barricades on the west side of the trail because of some rock slides that block the path. There are small paths that go right around and connect back onto the main road. The small detours were a little too difficult to ride our road bikes through, but we just picked them up and walked them. The paths are easy enough to walk or mountain bike through. The rest of the path is very beautiful and a pleasant ride.

alas... every good trail has a proposal point... this one trumps all else on coastal views... just like in marriage things start kinda..well..peaceful & easy.. then begins the climb... sometimes you pass where you one should not go (I'm talking about heading past the trail closed sign)... but..let's all agree the effort is worth the climb... summiting affords a reward of panoramic views of the world class rocky cliffs... God himself carved out this trail in all its glory... dream of the perfect love...the kind that bows its knee and offers eternal-like love at a perfectly placed bench on the edge of the world..should this world be flat I would certainly fall off... please some share your proposal moment... and after the mountain high life will no doubt circle you back on the challenging path... you will follow a trail that was crafted by the harshness of wind and water.. (quite literally you will follow a wash) cared for by only mother nature herself... but worth the challenge in every way...ending where the beginning began... peaceful & easy...

one of most beautiful and easiest hikes in the area. best place to see sequoias outside Sequoia or Yosemite National Parks. just note that this hike is also in another National Park and you need to pay

Great moderate workout!

best beach i have ever been to
