Explore this nook of wilderness that is near the UCSF campus, this greenbelt has a native garden and is a great place to get away for a few hours. Take the Historic Trail to loop around to the North Ridge Trail

Challenging switchbacks and quick downhill amazingness. Great for keeping your skills fresh. Watch out for hikers and be respectful on the trail. No need to race around.

I live in the neighborhood and this is the best trail run in San Francisco. I also do lots of mountain biking here, my only recommendation is if you mountain bike to be extra cautious because this is a mixed use trail with many blind switchbacks and I often see parents with small children on the trail. I don't recommend this to people with small children for that reason. Overall you have a peaceful vibe in the eucalyptus trees paired with occasional views of all sides of San Francisco and the Bay.

I really enjoyed the hike. it's perfect for people that want something really close to the city but still have the feeling of being surrounded by nature. from time to time you can even see the bay picking through the trees.

Amazing trails right in the heart of SF, great for hiking, biking, mildy rocky/rooty singletrack. Be prepared to stop frequently as you will likely need to let hikers pass.
