One of my favorite trail at Mt Tamalpais State Park.

Definitely was an adventurous trail! Views were alright but it was fun. A bit longer that I thought it’d be but was fun.

It’s not a traditional hike, but it’s still a must-do. Be careful about not missing the parking lot. Take a look at the map and use common sense rather than blindly following the driving directions through the app. I enjoyed this trial because of the elevation gain. You start huffing a puffing! I’d love to try camping down there.

Part of this trial is a more popular because it intersects with Battery, the photo location everyone takes the quintessential Golden Gate Bridge photo at. Walking to this lookout spot after Kirby Cove is a must! Don’t worry, you won’t miss it.

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.

Very popular. Beautiful but lots of people.

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!

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.

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

Absolutely beautiful hike. We parked about a mile away (to avoid paying because we left wallets..oops) and so that added a little more than I would have liked. But it was beautiful and getting to the falls was so worth it! Wear good shoes! Your feet will thank you!!

Must do in San Francisco. Lands End is a unique stand out among the stunning west coast (obviously there are plenty of other amazing spots as well) that’s incredibly accessible.

Great way to start the year!

Great place for great views. Friendly for hitting, jogging. Easy “hike” for most kids, but there are some steps that need to be navigated so some could struggle a bit.

This was one of the best hikes I’ve been on.

Love this app! Makes hiking easy and fun!

Beautiful December day. Went with daughter around noon. Did it counterclockwise. It’s actually about 7.4 miles long. First half moderately strenuous and uphill. Second half easy but downhill and lots of rocks so wear good shoes. Beautiful all the way - redwoods, streams, ocean view, shade and sun. Moderate foot traffic but generally mellow folks around. Classic NorCal hike. We even spotted a big coyote - it crossed the trail, then climbed a hill and stared at us.

Great hike. A bit longer than advertised right now as you have to hike a mile or so from where you park on Aptos Creek Road (the non-paved portion was inaccessible by car, I think that opens up in the summer). Clocked it around 9 miles.

Beautiful walk. The path is very accessible and great for children. The description says, “heavily trafficked” and that is an understatement.

This trail is amazing! I think I logged almost 10 Miles. The scenery in the mountain on the trail was so beautiful. I had some hot tea on the beach and watched the dolphins. Then at 730am I hit the trail. Finished up with lunch and a beer at the Siren Canteen on the beach. Amazing time!!!
