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.

This trail has some REALLY steep hills! Not a lot of shade so bring a hat. Wide open paths, great views and a beach area to relax on afterwards. Busy trial and parking is busy so get there early!!

Amazing hike with great views.

Parking was challenging but worth it. Easy walk to the top and the view was breath taking.

Gorgeous views!

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.

The trailhead is on a very narrow street that looks like a driveway.

Hike begins with views of Tiburon, Sausalito, and parts of SF. Then turns to views of the ocean.

Lightly trafficked trail but does get busier as you get closer to Muir Beach.

Dog friendly.

Tough first half

From the Rodeo Beach parking lot go clockwise: Coastal Trail - Wolf Ridge Trail - Miwok Trail - Rodeo Valley Trail - parking lot. Personal rating: good hike to repeat, moderate level, not long, 1 hr 45 min, beautiful views.

Beautiful view!

This is my first longest trail route. It has lot of trails inside you may end up going into some other route ensure you can carry gps trackers. In this trail route you will see golden gate and Pacific Ocean. Good for moderate level hikers to start with hard levels
