The Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) is a U.S. National Recreation Area administered by the National Park Service that surrounds the San Francisco Bay area. It is one of the most visited units of the National Park system in the United States, with over 13 million visitors a year. It is also one of the largest urban parks in the world, with a size two-and-a-half times that of the consolidated city and county of San Francisco. The park is not one continuous locale, but rather a collection of areas that stretch from northern San Mateo County to southern Marin County, and includes several areas of San Francisco. The park is as diverse as it is expansive; it contains famous tourist attractions such as Muir Woods National Monument, Alcatraz, and the Presidio of San Francisco. The GGNRA is also home to 1,273 plant and animal species, encompasses 59 miles (95 km) of bay and ocean shoreline and has military fortifications that span centuries of California history, from the Spanish conquistadors to Cold War-era Nike missile sites.

Great workout, but not the best hike to bring your girlfriend on for her bday - bring lots of water and apologies.

This is a challenging hike, it’s long and it has numerous moderately steep climbs that are each 1-2 miles in length and there is no tree shade. These long sections of climbing will definitely give you a workout. The app rates this hike as hard. I agree. I parked at the suggested trailhead near the roundabout off Conzelman Road. Next time I’ll park near the Gerbode trailhead in Rodeo Valley instead and pick up the remaining loop there. This will eliminate the out-back section of the Coastal Trail and will shorten the hike by approx 3 miles and will result in a better hike. My total hike was 12 miles, 4 hours 20 minutes.
