Great hike within the city - a short but pretty route, great for working up an appetite before lunch on a day off. Dog-friendly, but keep your buddy on leash, as there are cyclists on the trails that could easily spook them.

Loved this city walk. Perfect blend of flat and hills, and really neat staircases that connect the ‘trails.’ Perfect for a cool winter day.

Easy-moderate covered trails. Really great for running!

Probably the best trails for beginner mountain bikers. You can spend hours riding the trails. And most of the trails have good line of sight. You can see hikers with ease.

Definitely an easy hike! We started around 2pm and were done by 3:30pm and walked around the Mt Sutro loop. There are servers trails and you can get lost easily! Very confusing, you need a map if you want to follow the a trail. The historic trail is beautiful, and at some parts of it you have nice views of SF. But I wouldn’t go here for views, because there are other places with much better views of the city.

Great spot if you live in the city. Easy enough to bring the kids along as well.

Great place to bring your pup! Fun running in the dunes - great views

Great mixture of shade and sun, and has a fantastic secret bathroom at one of the campus buildings. Truly gorgeous greenery along well-maintained trails. Dog friendly. Keep an eye out for poison oak and roots that cause uneven footing.

This is more of a dog park than a trail. Great if you like dogs. To be avoided if you don’t like dogs or are running.

gorgeous views. lots of sand and dogs

Super when it's not foggy or windy. Woof!

Contained trail. There's plentiful parking and you can see everything from the higher parts of the trail. Not a lot of solitude though or variation in scenery.

Beautiful views of the Pacific, but too many dogs off leash to be a favorite for me.

Took a hike here at midday - great hike. Very short, but nice to get away for a little while.

Beautiful, wooded trail in the city but because there are so many intersecting routes that meet this particular, somewhat confusing, one it was difficult to stay on course and cumbersome to keep checking my phone on such narrow walkways.

BEST dog park in the Bay!

Sometimes it’s hard to believe we have this little beauty right in the city. Great short hike or jogging route.

enter and exit with Sunshine but in the middle of the trail there might be frost and slight rain so the road is a little muddy.

One of the best views of the city! This tiny hike is definitely worth it if you are in the area. If possible, ascend on the west side of the hill and keep your head down until you breach the top crest. The view of the bay and city is very striking framed in the red/brown rocks.

Very fun trail, a lot to see, especially the hang gliders. Not strenuous, good for a walk in most weather.

My backyard. Hidden SF gem

A great city escape; trail is narrow and temperatures can vary quite a bit as you walk around Mt. Sutro, but still a must do trail

Easy trail with a couple of steep switchbacks but definitely a beginner trail. There’s lots of poison oak, runners, dogs, and bikers, but the trail gets deep enough into the forest to provide an urban escape with mist and silence punctuated by bird calls and creaking trees.

So beautiful, it almost feels like you're away from the city.

A beautiful hike in the.middle of the city! This trail really makes you feel like you are out of the city and out in the forest where you can only hear the sound of trees in the wind. I went in July and there were so many cherry trees and plum trees with fruit. Def recommend!! Lots of mountain bikers like to rise here.

This is hidden gem in SF. Well maintained trails great for hiking, taking a stroll, trail running, kid-friendly, and dog-friendly. It’s a quick and easy 2 mile loop but we took an hour just strolling about and training our dogs in the process. It was a windy and cloudy SF day, nice and cool. Halfway through the loop there’s an awesome scenic vista into the canyon and forest. It looked magical in the mist.

I can't believe it is right in the middle of the city. It's absolutely beautiful. You feel like you're deep in the forest as soon as you enter. The trees, flowers, and the smell will calm you the entire time.
