I’ve done this trail from beginning to end and back again! A few times! I love all of it, the views are amazing and so are the trails and steps! It’s one that I will keep doing until I feel accomplished with my finish time, and even then, I will still do it because I personally like it!

Beautiful hike.

Dear older children who are being dragged here, it's all up hill (very pretty) but wear your Nikes and your work out clothes and a hat (for the wind, very windy, very). Feels much longer than a mile, you'll have a story for sure!!! Take your pictures before the hike, trust me.

The tiled steps are quite beautiful, if you go in the middle of the day. Avoid the crowds

Amazing views! One of the top views in the entire bay area in my opinion. The hike is steep the entire way but totally doable. I took my 2 year old and had to carry most of the way. Definitely take pics when you get to the top you will be looking down on the Golden Gate, SF and Angel Island

Beautiful hike! It is moderate and goes around the bay :-)
Nice views of Golden Gate all the way. If you want to hike all the way to Golden Gate, you need to walk through BEAUTIFUL homes in SF! The one's which are like my Dream Homes! Oh well moving on, the hike is simple walk from the trail end to GG.

I would rate this hike as easy / moderate! Some elevation which is nullified by the beautiful views.

This is a really beautiful stop. The steps and landscaping are very well done. Don’t just climb to the top of the steps; continue on to the top of Grand View Park for sweeping views all the way from Golden Gate Park to Downtown San Francisco.

The hike is very beautiful with views of golden gate and fairly moderate trail with mostly flat terrain. We got there early(by 7.00 am) , so the parking was ample and the trail was less trafficked. The weather was just perfect for a hike.

Great views, not always clear and usually windy. Definitely a fairly easy walk and great for dogs.

Definitely come here early in the morning. Just went on July 15, and we were glad we got there early at 8:30. Got the trial to ourselves and made it down to Eagle’s point. We hung out for a bit and circled around to the Legion of Honors museum and made our way back down to the coastal trail. On the way back there were a TON of people. Glad we came early to secure parking and made sure we didn’t have to walk side by side with everyone else that just start the trail. Great scenes here and there for a quick photo with the bridge. Will come again soon, but a lot earlier to get the trails to ourselves.

Nice trail with great views! The negative is that many tourist congest the trail, so def get there before 10am.

Didn’t hike much of it but it was like being in an army base

Great hike to a great viewpoint. It's essentially walking up a very steep road to a wide, flat viewpoint above the Marin Headlands. Great views of the GGB, Kirby Cove, Fort Baker, Mt. Tam, and much more remote than the throngs you get down on the Battery Spencer trail. Don't miss this; stop at small gravel parking area next to the round about at the intersection of Conzelman and McCullough, and hike down through the bushes and across the road at the gate. From there it's all uphill. View is definitely worth the effort.

Is an awesome walk along the coast with stunning views. Sutro baths are super interesting too! The paths are easy to navigate and there are often stairs when it gets steep. Would definitely recommend, is suitable for most!

If the weather is good, as it was for me, this cannot be beat for views. One after another spectacular view along the Coastal Trail. The return leg takes you past the golf course and Legion of Honor. Also has a fair climb that will get your heart pumping, as will the stairs along the Coastal Trail and down to the Labyrinth. Also worth checking out the nearby Sutro Baths.

So fortunate to have caught it on a clear day. Easily one of the most beautiful urban hikes I've seen. Parking was a breeze at the visitors center.

Short steep hike that has a rewarding finish! Beautiful views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge

Enjoyed this scenic hike. Beautiful views of the ocean, greenery, and Golden Gate bridge. It was super pleasant on a sunny but cool and clear day.

Beautiful trail with lots to see. Didn’t see any shipwrecks though. It’s also a long trail. Our map took us on a loop at the end. The loop further away from the coast isn’t as scenic. A lot of people were going back along the coastal trail.

The traffic was moderate but not too bad for a Sunday.

Beautiful view and a great hike to go with friends and family.

Great trail. Not to difficult. A lot of stairs. The views of the bridge are amazing. Would definitely do again

Great short hike with beautiful vistas of the ocean and the headlands. Best to go during the warm part of the day due to the typical windy conditions.

Don’t be fooled this is a short hike but it could leave you out of breath especially if you’re hiking and talking/laughingg with a friend you haven’t seen for a while. The views were superb. And the labyrinth was a hidden surprise. I’ll do it again.

This is more of a historic walk than a hike.
