Escape the city and head for the hills! Cross the bridge in search of nature, beaches, lighthouses and awesome roads! Just a few short miles from the bustle of San Francisco lies the relative peace and quiet of the Marin Headlands where you can enjoy Golden Gate views among rolling hills and soaring raptors. This route guides you along the San Francisco bay from Chrissy Field and on to the Golden Gate Bridge. From there you hang a left and head for the hills. The first part of the journey into the hills consists of a constant uphill climb for around 500ft (150m) until reaching the summit of Hawk Hill. Zipping downhill on the curvy coastal road will lead you quickly past even more scenery, a multitude of old military concrete defense structures and towards Point Bonita.
