Iconic. Legendary. A must see.

I had a very good time. Enjoyed the nature very relaxing and the best part is that I could take my dog.

Great beach and bluff exploring with great views of the Bridge. Overnight camping a The Presido Rob Hill Campground

Great run. First time I’ve gone running in forever, but was able to run/jog about 60% and walked the other 40%. In all it took me about 45 minutes. Definitely a challenging run with elevation changes, but also really nice scenery. I’ll for sure do this trail again in the near future.

Born next to this one at Letterman

Love this trail a lot! Less people breathtaking views good exercise!

Fairly easy hike. There is other interconnecting trails, some that go across the Golden Gate bridge, The Presidio, etc. This coastal one has views of the GG bridge pretty much at any spot of the trail. There's area of quite a bit of steps. You can go down and walk along the beach, Marshall's Beach (There's some nudist) and also Baker Beach. My group kept on going through Seacliff area, to Lands End Labyrinth, and ended at Sutro Bath ruins to catch a beautiful sunset. This was first time, but can't wait til next one!

No pictures can really do the Golden Gate Bridge justice. Standing on top and looking down is an immense feeling. Toss something off the side and count the second until it reaches the bay.

It's a little hard to figure out exactly where in the presidio this trail is, use the map carefully and it will be great! Expect some steep uphill, but overall pretty easy and relaxing. A good change of scenery and my favorite - view of the Golden Gate Bridge.

This trailer is not well marked but it's quite beautiful when you're in the woods it is powerful seeing the national cemetery

Nice, easy hike in a great urban environment. Thank you to the Presidio Trust for saving this gem from commercial development.

This was an amazing little hike/jog.... Had the best time and the scenery was beautiful...

Mostly paved, along roads. Starts strong, with views and wooded paths, but peters out quickly.

Ok hike. Short & sweet

When turning into golf club and café head for the first right hand parking lot – the trailhead is on the right side of that lot. The hike was a bit longer than expected though well worth it. If you have a pet-the Park Trail shortcut is not possible due to Coyote warnings. Requires a little navigation to make the loop. Much of the trail is through-woods. You will cross a few roads and walk along the road a short way and through residential neighborhoods toward the end of the hike to pick up the last portion that goes through the cemetery. We walked slowly and took breaks with our dog and it took about two hours. A few minor uphill and down hills. Moderate hike is a good assessment. Views at the top...of the Marin headlands are outstanding! Bring a camera! Unexpected crossing underneath Presidio Boulevard which we have never done! Lots of other hikers along the way. The final 1/2 mile is uphill...behind Mountain Lake Park. If you are tired-take one of the set of steps on the right, to cut through the dog park at the top of the mountain lake park which puts you out at around 8th Avenue and Lake Street; for pick up by whomever you hiked with that parked at the trailhead. It's about 8 blocks from there;)

Great views and amazing trail. You have free busses every 30 min, in case you get tired.

Great view of Golden Gate Bridge

We started the hike at 10:00 am from the Presidio Transit Center. We hiked through the Presidio to the Golden Gate Bridge toll plaza, walked under the bridge and took the Coastal Trail to Land's End - visit Marshall's and Baker's Beach, the beautiful Seacliff neighborhood, Land's End Trail, Sutro Baths, Cliff House, and ended at Ocean Beach. Total distance was 7.6 miles with elevation of 951 feet. Our moving time was 2:46 but with so many beautiful coastal view stops and a lunch break at the Ocean Beach, our total time was over 4 hours. It was a wonderful hike and rated moderate because the distance.

Ive never been here

We actually started at the Crissy Field Center, crossed the street onto Baker, walked past the Palace of Fine Arts, then crossed Gorgas Ave, through Lucas Park in the Presidio. We hiked up to Lover's Lane Trail, turned right on Mountain Lake Trail, turned right on Ecology Trail around El Polin Springs and the Grassland Restoration. We continued on Ecology Trail to the left then out and back to Inspiration Point. From Inspiration Point we turned right on the Ridge Trail all the way to Immigrant Point overview, then continued on to Batteries to Bluff Trail to the Golden Gate Bridge overlook (toll Plaza), then down the stairs to Fort Point, then took the Gate Promenade back to the East Beach and the starting point. Total distance was 7 miles. It was a fun hike.

More of a walk than a hike. There's a ton of other tourists, but it's a scenic trail that you have to go on if you're near the golden gate. Beautiful scenery and picture spots. My favorite parts were the walk to Marshall's beach and the sand ladder. These are somewhat off the trail so make sure you take these detours

One of my favorite walks in the city. I usually park by Ft Point and go as far as China Beach but this segment is awesome. The hike down to the beach is worth it.
