Take the Baquaiano Trail up to the San Francisco Bay Discovery Site. Along the way enjoy pictuesque views of the bay, and coastal scrub habitat. The ridge climbs up to 1200'.

Makes it a lot more scenic if you head west along the Farralones View Trail on top of the ridge, but be ready for a solid uphill climb back to Baquiano. Good connection to Sweeney ridge.

Great hike, steep at the beginning. We ended up hiking 4.7 miles in total...must have ventured off the trail a little bit when we reached the Nike Missile Site. No incredible outlook but good views almost the entire time. Good for dogs except there was a decent amount of mountain bikers but luckily a wide trail. Horses allowed also but I did not encounter any. No shade at all but it's Pacifica so you will probably have a higher chance of clouds/fog. Nice hike.

Steep, strenuous hike for me, but the views and historic significance made it well worthwhile. Sign at the trailhead says 1.7 miles to the discovery site. Be sure to stay to the right - a marker for the Baquiano trail misled us briefly.

Watch out for ticks and bugs. This trail is infested with ticks. we took our dog on the trail and had a tough time getting rid of the ticks. In addition thw trails are not marked adequately. Views were ok as compared to mori point and other parts of sweeney ride, nothing special.

Great hike with wonderful views and some incredible Bay Area history. Not difficult but not flat by any means. A perfect hike for a sunny day in the Bay. This would be a good hike to go on and bring a small picnic with you.

The Baquiano Trail is a lovely hike. The trail from Fassler Ave starts off steep but flattens out in the middle. It gets steep again just before it meets Sweeney Ridge. There are stunning views from all sides as you hike and very little "traffic" on this section. Do note, the "All Trails" map layer has the trail name spelled wrong, as of this review, and the section starting at the church is actually the "Farallones View Trail".

Started at 4pm and the wind was a greater challenge than the elevation but it was just lovely with so many wildflowers in bloom and amazing views.

Great view. Issue is the trail may get too hot as there are no shades or any trees. Bring water.

This is a great hike that connects the Fassler Ave Trail to the Sweeney Ridge Trail. It's farily steep and challenging. When you get to the Sweeney Ridge Trail its paved and down hill to Sneath Lane from their. Great views and not that congested.
