This hike exceeded all expectations. We took the ferry from San Francisco which is about $5 more than Tiburon and much longer while giving closer views of Alcatraz. Angel Island was beautiful and provides panoramic views of the city I've never seen before. My favorite was being able to view SF as a bridge sandwich with Alcatraz on the sea below. The history is another added bonus. Will definitely come again with visitors.
