More of a moderate than hard. Love that you can drop into Stinson for a beer and then head back up. Amazing views.

Great hike! I'd rate it moderate rather than difficult, and it's more like 7.5 miles with the walk to Stinson Beach. The Matt Davis trail is behind the Fire Station, and we passed by it at first. Steep Ravine was much prettier, but Matt Davis still had a great view of the ocean.

AMAZING. One of my most favorite hikes I've ever done. Epic views, challenging but not too-tough terrain, Stinson Beach stop halfway, interesting and carrying flora and climates. Get a map at Pantoll and fill up with LOTS of water for exposed parts (which are many)! It gets hot. Plan to have at least your last half after the fog burns off (after 1pm) because you don't want to miss the amazing vistas, available on both trials. I went down Matt Davis and up Dipsea. Don't bother trying to park in the Pantoll lot; plenty of pullouts along Panoramic Hwy into Pantoll. But DO start at Pantoll station for a map and water. Be aware that hella tourists, SF-ites, and college students swarm this spot on weekends. Try a weekday :) if you're heading up from the South, grab a latte at Coyote Coffee in Mill Valley and use the restroom in the Walgreens across the street--and pick up sunscreen if you forgot it!! You'll need it. Best. Daytrip. Ever.

Great Hike, beautiful views when you get to peak through the trees to the ocean. We went down Matt Davis and up Steep Ravine which is the direction I'd recommend. Stopping for lunch on Stinson Beach was a good way to go as well. You can also park at nearby Bootjack.
