This hike through the Marin coastal headlands has a pleasant sense of remoteness in juxtaposition to the nearby Golden Gate Bridge. Get away from the crowds and enjoy stunning costal views. Also a popular raptor viewing area. NOTE: Dogs are only allowed on Miwok Trail. Dogs are not allowed on the Bobcat Trail.

Great hike! We went clockwise and up the steeper incline (over the first 2 miles). Definitely the more aggressive incline but rewarding at the top! It also led to a more leisurely downhill hike for the remaining 4 miles.

Pleasant hike with some nice views of the water, but basically no shade

Nice escape from SF- lush greenery, jack rabbits, the howls of coyotes and many birds. Trail is pretty easy- first half is uphill, second half downhill. Good views the entire time.

This is the perfect "moderate" hike. Enough climbing to get your heart pumping but at accessible grades, great views of coast and pastoral landscapes, wildflower and wildlife watching, and wide smooth dirt trails with even footing the whole way. There is light traffic (hikers, bikers, and horseback riders) the whole way but it never feels crowded. I think this is a great hike to do with visitors who aren't die hard hikers.

Great hike! A nice loop with beautiful views. I followed some other reviews and went counter clockwise which was good advice to combat some of the hills :)
