Explore the Saddle of San Bruno Mountain State Park. This loop option offers nice views and pleasant wooded areas. A great loop for hikers of all ages. Take the Saddle Loop Trail to the Bog Trail

Excellent trail to view the San Francisco skyline and Bay. Beautiful views of the ocean too. Not too difficult of a trail either! We got lucky and had a cloudless/fogless day; it truly made the hike worthwhile. The wind can get a bit ridiculous though. Tie a hat to your head!

This was a nice easy walking trail. Pretty windy on the way up but a very nice view of San Francisco. I particularly liked the decent on the Big Trail near the end. Beautiful canopied trail with fern undergrowth.

Really nice trail. It's quite a climb, but the path is very well kept and easy to follow. Quite rocky so wear hiking shoes if you have them.

Short easy trail, great views of the city and the bay. About 0.5 miles of the trail is on pavement. Must pay for parking in the lot.

Awesome views of the city! It does get pretty windy so I would recommend a light jacket.. we were there early so parking wasn’t bad and it wasn’t too crowded.. I would totally come back to this park ...

Best close-to-downtown 1hr powerwalk. Sweeping views of Alameda, East Bay, City, Tam, and Pacifica. Often windy and exposed.

My staple trail while living in Oceanview. This is a great place for a morning run or walk. The trail is steep at some times but moderate and the views of SF are awesome!

Great hike for beginners. You get some awesome views of South San Francisco and San Francisco itself. The Bog Trail was very muddy when I went (due to the recent storms) but that didn't discourage or upset me. It was all part of the hiking experience! All around decent hike!

Doesn't seem like 2.8 miles. Panoramic views of bay and city. Windy on the exposed bluffs north

Scenic view of Southern part of San Francisco as well as the bay. Perfect for beginners as the roads were paved.
