Start at Stinson - lots of greenery, trees , steep steps that open up to sweeping ocean views & meadows. I recommend starting early - gets crowded. Just beautiful

Was a bit muddy but great fun if wearing shoes that can get dirty. Was a bit busy towards the end of the loop. Beautiful scenery. Difficult enough to count it as the days workout but not to extreme. Recommend for a weekend adventure.

Beautiful views but was very steep in some places. Be sure to pay attention to the trail. It was ver slippery coming down steep ravine trail and the trail is narrow in some areas making it difficult to pass other people going the opposite direction. Be forewarned, as the only way up/down on steep ravine trail is the ladder and it is very slick. If you make a right at the bridge that says Dipsea Trail, you end up at Cardiac Hill. The views are amazing but it is quite the trek to get up there.

Beautiful greenery and waterfalls. Slippery and steep. Take Steep Ravine up and Dipsea down. Virtually just us on a weekday.

Loved it. So much change in scenery. Went counter clockwise so went up the stairs through the ravine first. Went through the lush redwoods later. Next time will try reverse and also start earlier in the morning
