Enjoy stunning views on the Ridge Trail. The ridge runs in an East West direction and offers great views of the city. Start at the top of San Bruno Mountain and continue along the ridge. Hike the popular wilderness preserve on this great San Francisco Peninsula hike. Looming large over San Francisco and the northern peninsula, the wilderness preserve of San Bruno Mountain state and county park is home to several rare and endangered species of flora, fauna and wildlife, including the elfin butterfly.

We've only done small pieces of this loop, but we love it. Getting up to the ridge path can be a bit of a haul, but the views are amazing all along the way. In the summer weather pattern you're basically walking right into the fog.

Went on the Ridge trail trek. Good little 2.5 mile trail down and another 2.5 miles back. Great views of San Francisco when the weather is clear. Not very crowded considering the views it provides.

Close to the city and enjoyable enough. You still get city noise on the ridge but you have 360 degree views--bay to South San Francisco to ocean horizon to city skyline. Be sure to have exactly $6 to pay for parking. Do not follow the parking directions on the mobile app--they wound me through a neighborhood where there was no trailhead--or least that I could find.
