Beautiful area just out side of San Francisco. It was breathtaking seeing the redwoods. Can get pretty crowded so I suggest arriving early.

nice chill beautiful hike

Beautiful country side. Mostly open trails, not paved. Everyone is in a great mood, even the dogs are friendly.

Great day walking!

I really liked this trail. Although you can hear the sounds of the city in the distance, they have done a wonderful job putting this together. It would be even better when they have the waterfall turned on. Looks like the stream would run through the separations between the pads on the east part of the island.

Short trail, good for kids, our kids enjoyed picking fennel leaves and sour grass, and they loved gallivanting on the beach.

We started from inspiration point and hiked all the way to vollmer peak via seaview trail.. about 3 miles one way.. We reached around 9 am there were lot of vacant spaces In the parking lot.. There is also a restroom near the parking lot at inspiration point.. Amazing views of San Pablo reservoir , Golden Gate Bridge and the city.. Nice elevation and great workout.

So we did this trail backwards which I think I preferred since I hate walking downhill. For all the downhill part of the hike we went uphill which seemed hard to some of my hiking companions. Very nice views and not a lot of hikers on the trail. Couldn't record the entire route; the app was killing my phone while tracking and battery was draining fast.

Do it! You will not be disappointed. Views are really great

very peaceful hike

Loved the trail but there are a TON of stairs. I don’t know that I would call this moderate.. I brought friends and after the first mile up the steep stairs we all wanted to turn back. I wish I knew how to do this hike backwards..

Awesome trail! We started from Bootjack Campground and hiked TCC trail to Cardiac Hill. Amazing views from there!

great trail. If you're hoping to take your dog off leash however you're out of luck... a lot of mountain bikers using this narrow trail.

fav reg hike for dog, hiking, trail runs and evening strolls

one of my favs. great intense inclines and areas if flat and down hill parts. fantastic views and always a great hike in this area and on this trail !

Very scenic trail and a great workout. Went there by myself but if anyone needs company would love to go back :)

Not as barren as I was expecting. Is really lovely actually. Lots of space and parking. Much easier to take a reactive dog to.

Beautiful scenery with many route options. We ended at 2.5 miles and not the 1.5 listed. We were able to hike down to the beach for easy waking with surrounding dogs.

Fun, easy hike. A little bit of an incline at the end that makes it more fun! Partially paved, mostly gravel. On a hot day wear a hat!


If you go clockwise, your climb will be a bit steep to the top, however the descent will be more gradual and pleasant, so if you have knee issues I would suggest to go clockwise. If you prefer a steady ascent but a steeper descent then counterclockwise is recommended.

Amazing views!

Stunning views

Great views if the bay area on a clear day.

Not really a heavy trafficed trail. Plenty of shade, lots of great vista points to see.
