Go when it’s a little foggy

Easy trail. Waterfall has a decent amount of water at the moment. Scenic and relaxing.

Beautiful blue sky, and plenty of kiddo's heading up this trail on a Saturday! Pretty packed, but still enough breaks in between people to breathe and get some fun shots. Went in through North Rios Avenue, went right up through the canyon and out through the switchbacks and back again.

Nice short hike beautiful views the entire way and historical sights at the summit but very busy during the weekends. I have done this hike at least 20-30 times (mostly in 2009 & 2010). Unfortunately, there is graffiti in some areas now and mountain bikers were frequent (8-10 in 2 hrs) this morning. I would rate it a 3.5 or 3.75 out of 5 but it's not possible on this site.

the first three miles on the trail are a bit steep but it's definitely worth it!

Amazing place!!! Worth the visit if you are traveling around. Easy short hike, but expect a strong cold wind during the winter time. A+++

Truly one of the best hikes I’ve done. Went down Matt Davis to get the views of the pacific, had a lunch break at Stinson Beach, and then up Dipsea to Steep Ravine and back to the Pan Toll ranger station. The changes in scenery were perfect and the hike was the perfect amount of challenging. I’d rate it as Medium rather than Hard.

Not much to see but a good cardio workout, especially the last 1/3. Up, up, up!

This is a tough trail. All uphill, no shade and despite being able to hear the city noise, still relaxing. There were two mini-very tiny waterfalls and a small stream. I recommend this trail for teens and adults not so much for kids.

Steep difficulty loop trail. but view is amazing. Recommend hike start right side first. You will see lake view first. Need spend 3.5hours

Trained for my GoRuck tough on this trail, not heavily crowded and a beautiful view.

Not well marked at all but if you can get connection and use the app you can get your way through it. Hiked around 345pm in Jan 2018 and saw about 8 mtn bikers too so it’s used by a few types of people. Nice 1.5 -2 hr hike for a quickie in the day. Loved it!

Great hike, little hard to find the real beginning (on Cedar Valley Dr) instead of the halfway point right off the 41. But either way great hike with plenty of steps and areas to rest and enjoy the falls.

Awesome sites! Great inclines. Definitely a beginner trail.

Great family hike to the top! Once your at the top the views are beautiful!

Great for a dog walk
