Lots of ticks! Also there were a couple animals wandering around looking at my dog as meat. Decided not to complete it

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.

Easy walk down to the beach. You can book to camp there too. Finding parking on top was a pain since there’s very limited space. There was no swing when I went.

Is an awesome walk along the coast with stunning views. Sutro baths are super interesting too! The paths are easy to navigate and there are often stairs when it gets steep. Would definitely recommend, is suitable for most!

If the weather is good, as it was for me, this cannot be beat for views. One after another spectacular view along the Coastal Trail. The return leg takes you past the golf course and Legion of Honor. Also has a fair climb that will get your heart pumping, as will the stairs along the Coastal Trail and down to the Labyrinth. Also worth checking out the nearby Sutro Baths.

So fortunate to have caught it on a clear day. Easily one of the most beautiful urban hikes I've seen. Parking was a breeze at the visitors center.

Enjoyed this scenic hike. Beautiful views of the ocean, greenery, and Golden Gate bridge. It was super pleasant on a sunny but cool and clear day.

Beautiful trail with lots to see. Didn’t see any shipwrecks though. It’s also a long trail. Our map took us on a loop at the end. The loop further away from the coast isn’t as scenic. A lot of people were going back along the coastal trail.

The traffic was moderate but not too bad for a Sunday.

Beautiful view and a great hike to go with friends and family.

Great trail. Not to difficult. A lot of stairs. The views of the bridge are amazing. Would definitely do again

Great for mountain biking not much for hiking.

The most amazing views! Walking down is the easy part because it’s all downhill but going back up is a little more challenging! I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

Don’t be fooled this is a short hike but it could leave you out of breath especially if you’re hiking and talking/laughingg with a friend you haven’t seen for a while. The views were superb. And the labyrinth was a hidden surprise. I’ll do it again.

Beautiful, dog-friendly out and back with some mellow rolling hills and a nice picnic bench 2 miles in to stop for lunch.

Beautiful hike! It’s so nice to get some quiet time away from the city. The breeze feels wonderful as well. There are gorgeous views of the bridge so as to truly appreciate its scale. There are also a handful of interesting plaques posted describing the history of the area. Definitely recommend that you check this out, and it’s easily accessible by Muni.

Simple walk and nice views

Dogs not allowed on half of this trail. View is great, trail is nice. But once the trail crosses trail line highway there are signs posted: no dogs allowed.
