Pretty foggy day last Thanksgiving weekend but still beautiful. Lots of people, but that was to be expected.

This trail is beautiful! Lots of very steep stairs. At the parking area resides the Nastiest port-o-potty I have ever been in, and I work construction!

Fun easy little hike

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.

I love the Dipsea portion of this trail. I would suggest going the Matt Davis portion to the where the vista of the ocean is and then going back down Dipsea. My reason for this suggestion is that Matt Davis has lots of poison oak and seemed to be more crowded.

Great City trail. Don’t go beyond any ropes as the cliffs are very dangerous. On a clear day the views are amazing.

Be sure to go past Geary Street to Sutro park for another quick walk.

Easy trail suitable for all ages. Catch a view of the Golden Gate Bridge on sunny days.

It’s so beautiful. I love this place.

Amazing trail! Took me around 3 hours. I did it counter clockwise this time (starting on Dipsea, then Steep Ravine and lastly Matt Davis) and is much more enjoyable, as the uphill part is not only shorter but also nicer, with water running and beautiful trees. After 1.5 hours you will arrive to Pantoll Campground, where you can refill your water bottle. From there, is all downhill vía Matt Davis trail.

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

Amazing hike, took us 4 hours with lots of stops

Enjoyable area to get and and enjoy the outdoors

This was a gorgeous and moderately challenging hike with a decent amount of elevation change. Can’t wait to go back. Only reason I didn’t give five stars was the lack of maintenance. Exposed rebar on some Dipsea steps. Fencing down in many places along the route.

This was a lovely trail and a beaufiful day. The trail justified the ratings received on alltrails.com. We went up the Steep Ravine and came down on Matt David trail.

We are a new pro user of alltrails app, and the detailed offline maps and tracking were really worth it. Looking forward to many more.

One of my fav hikes I’ve done so far. Really beautiful, took Steep Ravine trail and went all the way down to Stinson Beach. Beautiful views.

Beautiful scenic views, family friendly.

A nice waterfall and scenery changes from forest to meadow to waterfall to coastal. Started from the Stinson beach fire station

My favorite hike in the Bay Area

Beautiful scenic views for a hike! must visit.

Beautiful views. Also, great to visit to watch sunset. It’s very easy, so you don’t have to wear hiking shoes etc. Great to bring friends / family visiting out of town. Check the weather before going, there is no point going there when foggy.

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!

Beautiful and varied views! Very exposed for maybe a third of the way so bring sun protection

The view never grows old. Elevation is just right.

Super easy, beautiful walk. The directions on the southeast end are wonky, but you can figure it out.

Loved the scenic trail. Listen to everyone’s advice and go counter clockwise. You’ll see a lot of beauty sceneries and feel like you’ve just stepped into the tropical wilderness. It’s about 4 miles to get to the top and you come to a rest stop for bathrooms, water fountains, guest information center, and vending machines. We were glad we brought enough water because we were almost out of water by the time we got to the rest stop.The climb was tough, but possible and be prepared to climb a ladder or climb down one if you are going clockwise. Once you finish the 6-7 mile trail you can enjoy lunch at the local restaurant near the beach. Go early in the morning because the sun will shine down at ya around 12 and it’ll get pretty warm.
