We took this trail after Canopy-Lost-Fern Creek trail. This trail passes Cathedral Grove, Bohemian Grove and Founders Grove. This trail is popular for public even children and elderly.

Good for solo hikes

Lots of steep uphill but the scenery is worth it

Great hike with great views of golden gate! Make sure to stop by Battery viewpoint! You fee like you are touching the bridge. The beach at the end is awesome! There were a few people there which was super nice :)

Amazing for a first hike on Mt.Tam! Loved the varied terrain from forest to ocean view. A treat for the kid in you to hike down stairs, to the creek, over bridges and then to climb a 10 rung sturdy ladder. Take your time and enjoy!

Enjoy this hike and the beautiful views. It was hard for me because of all the stairs and steps this hike had but overall it was beautiful!

It’s so beautiful. I love this place.

My favorite backyard hiking area! Easily end up with 15-20 miles. Coastal scenery is top notch, especially sunrise/sunset hikes. Lots of challenging hills to choose from. Great day hike

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

Got to the Muir beach parking lot at 9 on a Sunday and didn’t have trouble finding a spot. Hike is really worth the tough hills. Excellent views breezy and sunny on a good day. I took the coastal trail path way first- either way you are going to have lots of hills

Beautiful coastal hike. Two ups and downs - the downs a bit tricky with small loose rocks

Some nice coastal views towards the middle/hills but otherwise not that scenic

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.

Long hike that goes along the coast. Gets crowded by noon. Was foggy the entire time I hiked, so no views, but I could see how it would be gorgeous on a clear day.

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!

It’s nice beautiful trees

Nice, but more hyped up than imagined. Just about every hike in the area is similar unless you go far, and you can only look at the same tall trees so long before getting bored. California has many other, more exciting hikes, but if in SFO area, this is a decent area. Pain that you need to book in advance, bit keeps crowds of tourists out.

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. ❤️

Beautiful

Beautiful trail for running/hiking. Park at Stinson Beach parking lot (2-3 free electric car chargers are available; advisable to get there before 10am, otherwise quickly claimed). To get to Dipsea trail head, locate Parkside Cafe (faces the beach), and walk in front of it so you’ll be on Adrenal Ave. Walk up Adrenal (if you’re back is to the beach, make a right on Adrenal), to the trail head (~3 min walk).

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

Nice variety, lots of scenic vistas. There are lots of parking lots along the trail, so there are constantly a lot of people doing shorter hikes and carrying things to the beach. At times it was one step away from waiting in line to pass the steep parts. A lot of the hikers were unprepared for steep sandy slopes so dealing with people half-falling down the downhills was also a negative for me.
