Amazing hike with great views. Plenty of beaches as you keep going.

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

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!!

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

Tough first half

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
