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.

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; most of it is shaded which is nice on a hot day, steady elevation, easy parking and easy to follow. One thing though is there are no bathrooms so plan accordingly :)

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.

I felt it was hard and not moderate. it's only uphill hiking all the way with lose gravel,stones and not a proper trail path. however, it has trees and hence gives the shade along with beautiful views.

Great for trail running

Extended trail loop: clockwise from Rodeo Lagoon, 8.5 miles, 1400 ft elevation, 3 hours 4 minutes .

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.

Nice escape from the city without having to leave the city! Rather short and the trail is a little tight so watch out for bikers!!!

Loved this loop. Steady elevation gain w/no super steep areas, lovely shade through stands of oaks and redwoods. Easy parking along the side of the road where pavement turns to dirt. A bit of a hidden gem.

What a surprise! Equal to the best trails in Marin and Sonoma counties. Misty day, but a great showcase for the Redwoods and ferns that dominated the trail. Will be hiking the trail again on a hot, sunny day just to enjoy the contrast.

Expanded this loop to get some extra distance. Hiked clockwise starting at east end of Rodeo Lagoon - Miwok Trail - Bobcat Trail - SCA Trail - Conzelman Road rounbadout- Julian Trail - back to starting point. Total hike: 8.5 miles, 1,391 ft elevation, 3 hrs. Great trail. Refer to recorded map.

Cute hike. Not super easy if you're out of shape, but not hard or long. Made me feel like I stepped into Narnia. Does not feel like you're in the city AT ALL.

Went with with family and toddler and it really made him tired :p. My mom and dad really liked this trail as it was not far from the city and provided greenery views.

We went there today and loop was closed from top so had to come back the way we came.

loved it! beautiful and shady. it was a gradual climb to the top so not too bad. the trail at times gets pretty small. but a beautiful place!

Took the dogs around the lower loop, “lower” being relative at 1200 ft... lol. Great gradual hike with well maintained switchbacks. The Redwoods coming down over the mountain into the Novato valley are a great treat to eventually see on your way to the top. Looking forward to doing the upper loop next time!

This was so moderately perfect!!!!! Gorgeous! Everything is in bloom. Wonderful hike

I had a very good time. Enjoyed the nature very relaxing and the best part is that I could take my dog.

Beautiful trails, all shared with hikers and joggers. Steep, technical patches of roots and rocks, very blind switch backs. Have good brakes!! Steady climb from the start

Beautiful trail with great views! The trail was well marked, we followed the map in the post and had no problems using the trail markers. There is some wildlife on the trail, we saw a coyote. Enjoy!

Combine this with Fern Creek and you have a great loop. I agree with the comments on difficulty. The first half is more challenging than the second half

Great trail, took a picture of the map located at the trailhead, well marked easy to follow directions, shaded with big trees for majority of the hike. Muddy today but no big deal, still enjoyed this quiet hike.

Great little loop in Marin Headlands fairly close to the city! We started the loop clockwise to get the major incline out of the way, and it was a bit of a glute burner, but the views were just outstanding! Great wildlife viewing as well.

Took a little over 2 hours with a few photo stops along the way, LOTS of bikers and other hikers out fairly early, so try to get there at a decent hour for parking. Dogs are allowed on leash but saw plenty off leash during the morning.

Excellent trail. Easy parking and safe feeling. Was hoping for a view to the south to see SF on summit, but mostly valley views, arguably more pretty anyways. Shady, so really good for warm days, but can be really cold feeling on colder days (62 today but felt way cooler in woods), so wear many layers if it’s below 65.

Moderate rating is accurate - steepish sections but trails are very easy to follow and well maintained. Did it in about two hours. Lots of horse manure when we went, easy for humans to dodge, no big deal, but may become frustrating if you are navigating your four legged friends who always wanna sniff around it the whole way.

Like all hiking treks, check for ticks at the end. Noticed one heading for open skin after I got into my vehicle, caught him though, no sucking on me sucker!
