Second hike in 3 weeks on this trail. First hike was out and back per AllTrails route. Great 7 mile hike that I rated as 5-stars. This time I tried an alternate route back down the hill - turned left when Big Rock Trail turned into a fire road about 3/4 of the way up. Alternate route is not advised - turned out to be private land.

Easy to get to. Free parking. Get there early (before 8am) parking can get crowded after 8:30 / 9. Popular among runners. great views overall.

There is so much to see and it is fairly easy for everyone to do! The cave is definitely something you can’t miss!

Great family hike. Fun beach at the end for kids to splash in the puddles

Gorgeous hike! Nice challenge but not prohibitively so. Great views of rodeo beach, sf and Marin.

Nice for a quick day trip or exploring

This trail map should not include Point Bonita Trail. There's not a direct way to get from the Wolf Ridge-Lagoon Loop to Point Bonita without walking on the side of the road and through parking lots. Also, while the Miwok/Coastal/Lagoon trails are all dog-friendly, the Lighthouse Trail is definitely not. Just cut off the Lighthouse trail from this map and you've got a perfect day hike loop. A lot of confused people go into the park looking for the "Marin Headlands Loop trail" but won't find that. Just look for the Miwok or Lagoon trails to get started.

Beautiful ocean views!! Just know it's not dog friendly at the Lighthouse. They will turn you away if you try to see it with your pup.

Easy trail for the whole family

Great views! Awesome historic military bunkers

Spectacular views indeed, but you walk next to a road almost the entire time, which personally I don't consider a particularly nice hike.

I hiked to Slacker Hill via the SCA Trail starting from the North Golden Gate Bridge commuter lot. It's approx 1.6 stunning miles each way! Highly recommend.
