Def not easy, especially if you have any fear of cliffs and steep inclines near the edge of the Pacific but beautiful and peaceful. Also make sure to google map the parking lot, the directions here will just strand you on 1.

Mostly a walk to the beach (not much hiking). Make sure to take the stairs at the end to the top for a nice view of the beach and the greenery around!

Nice leisurely walk to Tennessee Beach, great side trails which we ended up doing the trail to Muir Beach the following weekend.

Nice crowd, nice restrooms too!

An easy, pleasant hike with an abundance of wildflowers. White-crowned sparrows greet you from the tall grasses and ravens croak overhead. During the right months of spring or winter, you might see multiple grey whales migrating along the coast. Bring some binoculars and take in the views.

Is only 4 miles hike, but steep. Very nice. Will be back springtime when the falls are fuller.

There is a couple of benches towards the end of the trail that overlook the beach. Very beautiful coastal scenery! Visited 8/5/2018

Short hike, the lower portion is paved and accessible, great views and even some connecting trail options, including a nice viewpoint to a rocky overlook. Upper part via the initial "plank trail" takes you to the top and fire lookout, with a great 360 view. Go on a clear day. On top of the east peak of Mt. Tam, this hike is worth a stop with great views of the city and surrounding areas. The pay station was overstuffed, had not been emptied for a while.

Beautiful. Easy. Quiet. Away from the crowds.

I did this trail with my daughters (15, 9). It is beautiful and peaceful away from the crowds. With kids, I am glad we went CCW around the loop. It is a steep climb the other way, and other families we met at the top were exhausted. The CCW loop is a nice steady climb up. The higher elevations of this trail give nice views, and it was a beautiful hike. However, you don’t need to go all the way up if your main goal is to see the redwoods. I am going back with my other 2 daughters, and will do it a little differently. I will start the CCW loop, but only climb 10-15 minutes to get a view from above. I will then go back down, and walk the Redwood Creek Trail to bridge 4 and return on the hillside trail.

Fun hike! It gets steep at one point which makes going down a little difficult but just take your time and use small steps and your hands for support.

This is definitely not an easy trail. The distance is 7.3 miles, not 5 and the elevation gain is serious. The parking is on the side of the Skyline Boulevard and is quite limited. The forest is great though. There are two benches on the trail.

Compared to hikes around, this wasn’t as pretty. Not many views although the woods were pretty. I’m assuming that this time of the year made the creeks dry since we say very little water. I’d stick to other hikes rather than coming back to this one. With that said, I still had a good time with my friend and got my blood flowing. The drive up was nice and there were great places to stop along the road to see gorgeous views of SF. Also, a plus was easy parking right at the trail head and no parking fee.

great hike. love the ease of the area. some areas are more moderate but still beautiful. love all the wild life.

Beautiful spot. There is an old rock quarry in the area that has been decommissioned. I have seen many mountain bikers in the area. All in all, a great place to watch wildlife whether that be in the ocean or along the coastal bluffs. Wildflowers are blooming now too.

The waterfall trail is absolutely gorgeous.

Do wear your hiking shoes. Most of the trail is loose and dry gravel soil with a few very steep sections. Not recommended during or after a rain. Lots of small branching trails and some are completely encroached by surrounding vegetation making it easy to get lost, but because it's open land, you'll eventually find your way back to the trail.

Beautiful scenery and not too crowded. Easy parking and many small trails to check out. Best to come when the lighthouse is open otherwise half the trail to it is closed including the tunnel and suspension bridge which is the fun part.

Multiple waterfalls, lots of shade, dog-friendly, easy loop, not crowded: what's not to like? No permit was required for hiking as this was after 6/30.

Nature beauty everywhere!!! Will be coming back soon!

Amazing views of the pacific. A bit close to the highway but a great way to unwind after work.

Dogs are not allowed. We brought our dog, immediately saw signs that said no dogs, but took him anyways because we were already there and got a stern warning from a ranger.

Now I don't know whether to bring my dog or not - conflicting review says dogs are NOT allowed, above says yes allowed on leash. Hmmm

Dogs are not allowed on this trail.

Great family hike. Very beautiful views.

GPS will take you right to parking area. there is no service once you start walking trail. really nice walk and the beach at the end is just GORGEOUS! doesn't feel like your in the bay area. blue water. make sure you do a TICK check before you leave.

Great for hiking with kids and grandparents

Beautiful view.

Very nice view, not so difficult even for casual hiker, but prepare a good hiking shoes for small rocks along the trail, and don’t go in a windy day.

Enjoyed this hike today. Only two other hikers during the few hours we took. There are some benches at the beginning mile that are a peaceful place to sit for a minute. The creek/river wasn’t really there. Good trail. The return is a workout!

Point Bonita Lighthouse is a charming place to visit! Parking is plentiful and the short walk to the lighthouse is easy. There are seals below the lookout point, a rock tunnel to walk through, and a cute bridge leading to the lighthouse! Loved it!
