Great easy hike for the weekend! Great views of the bridge.

Really cool hike Dec-March you can’t do the whole hike unless you do the tour as it’s National season and males are aggressive. There are limited spots. I almost didn’t go but it was awesome! $7 for the tour and $10 for parking

Heavily trafficked, lots of dogs. Pleasant elevation changes and scenic views. Not entirely removed from society: road noise audible at times and private houses are visible.

About 10 parking spots. Cars lined up to get one on a sunny Sunday.

FAVORITE. Surely breathtaking views! It’s an easy trail, but let’s just enjoy the views.

Nice loop with views and variation of open ridge and shadowy woods. Went clockwise.

Simply the most beautiful hike close to a major US metro in my opinion.

Amazing place. Gorgeous trail and views. If you go during Dec-March you will also enjoy views of elephant seals. Remarkable animals.
Trail is easy, with some walks on sand dunes. My 6 year old had no issues

Easy loop, great view, best to go on a weekday though if you can.

Great hike for families - the kids loved running up and sliding down the sand dunes. Lots of dogs having fun playing off leash. Beautiful views. Better on a less windy day when the sand isn’t whipping around

Great for a quick jog or a sunset stroll. Amazing views.

An easy trail - well worn and wide. Mainly overlooking cliffs, but there are a few spots where you can easily descend to a beach. As far as California coastline goes, the views aren't spectacular but just okay. Seems like a nice couples or family outdoor time kind of place.

Easy hike with great access to the ocean. Could easily push a jogging stroller on this trail. Busy but not overcrowded. Limited parking on site.

Stunning sights, a nice walk with a few stopping points for who wants to read or just take a break.
Was very windy the day I went. Also very busy.
Awesome wildlife sightings (birds and sea mammals).
There’s a $10 fee to park if you go all the way to the Park itself - park on the road right before it if you can!

Nice trails for dogs but no trash cans. Great views!


Beautiful trail and dog-friendly! Just be sure to pick up after them or else you will receive a very passive-aggressive note

Nice hike with a view or two thrown in. Nothing difficult but will break a sweat. The wildflowers are unique and worth stopping for.

Fantastic hike with incredible coastal views

Pretty easy trails. Lots of side trails you can take with wonderful views of the bridge and the bay.

Loved the hike. Great spot and the short ventures off the trail to the rock labyrinth, the baths, and the gorgeous view of the Golden Gate made for a great experience. 4 mile hike became 6 by the end of the day.

Stunning views on a nice day.

Nice 4miles trail and awesome views

Nice trail close to HMB. Just enough of a climb to keep the heart rate up.

In winter time, this trail is very popular for whale watching and only accessible by shuttle bus, $7 pp. Definitely worth to explore: beautiful landscape, dramatic cliffs, long beaches and rolling green hills that are speckled with cows. Once at the parking lot for the visitor center, a small hill awaits. Passing some resident housing and the visitor center, the lighthouse sits on a cliff below. 290 stair steps lead down to it. Volunteers are readily available to share historical details and stories.

Beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge and of the rocky shoreline.

While I think this trail is definitely worth checking out, I don’t think it’s a 5 star trail if you prefer longer hikes.

There is a parking lot with free parking and when my friend and I got there around 8:15 a.m. there was still a ton of parking left. There is also a bathroom with flush toilets and soap which is really nice. I also liked that the Sutro Baths are right next to the trailhead.

The main thing I didn’t like was how short it was and also the return route on the loop which is mainly on pavement. This is a great trail of you don’t have a lot of time or are going with people who are out of shape. Definitely do not plan this as a day hike though since it will take you less than 1.5 hours to do the whole thing.

I would feel safe doing this trail alone and would do it again maybe next year or the year after. It’s definitely not the best hike around though as the reviews and ratings would lead you to believe.

Those hills on the way back were killer! Great way to get the heart pumping.

Beautiful! Wonderful scenery. My only complaint is that the trail is not moderate, it is very easy.

I recommend going clockwise. The first section of the trail is being refinished. Some switchbacks and steeper sections, but overall nice mix of up-and-down to keep it interesting.
