This hike captures the best of the Golden Gate Bridge Marin side. Kirby Cove is a hidden gem, there is a rope swing hanging from a tree on the beach, you can also camp overnight. It's a must see! Also be aware that when you are heading up to Hawk Hill you want to take the one-way road at the end headed to Point Bonita Light House. The road to Hawk Hill might be temporarily closed due to high traffic. It gets crazy with tourists up there but it is well worth the stunning views. Also, bring layers, the weather can get hot then cold and windy.
