We did this hike last year and loved it. It went a lot faster than I expected. The cross at the top was fun to see in person (and not just in Dirty Harry). A great SF stroll.

What a neat and unique hike in an urban area. Glen park is wonderful with rock formations and blackberry bushes throughout. Most importantly, it’s a dog friendly hike. We thoroughly enjoyed the views up top on twin peaks. A bit breezy, but a worthwhile trek.

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.

Amazing views of downtown SF

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.

This is a great hike! The first portion has quite a bit of traffic, but it thins out the further you go. Great views if you take the 1.8 (rather then the .8) off shoot to the bridge. A lot of stairs on that route, so it kicks up the workout a notch too. If you are a beginner definitely go the .8 route on the road. Loved this hike! We were able to make it ten miles by taking the longer route and one offshoot to a lookout point.

Make sure it's a clear day and you'll get great views of the city; if the fog is in, don't bother. Have been on top during both conditions. On a nice day, it's basically a party on top. Enjoy the views, some good sitting areas, spray can art, and all kinds of fun. Take a picnic if you can find a parking spot.

Great views of Ocean Beach, the Sutro Baths, huge coastal trees and beautiful wild flowers along the Cliff House Walk at Land's End. At low tide can climb up onto the big rocks just offshore. But be careful when the tide comes back in! We had a great day.

My favorite trail in SF

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.

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.

A bit too easy. Great views! Bring gloves for when you're at the peak and in cloud cover if your hands freeze like mine do.

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

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.

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.

Enjoyable walk with great views of Golden Gate Bridge, labyrinth, and surroundings baths! Would definitely go again!

Nice place for a walk or run. Excellent place to take your dogs to do exercise.
