Beautiful hike a bit challenging with the flights of stairs, but not too difficult. Great views of the ocean and worth it to get a picture with the circle rocks.

Great trail! We started at the visitors center and hiked several of the trails. There is a lot to see here and a lot of awesome history, too. My Fitbit had us at just over 6 miles and 83 flights of stairs. The labyrinth is really cool, amazing ocean and bridge views, lots of interesting trees, and a ton of stairs! We loved it, we will definitely be back!

Absolute gorgeous views of the GG bridge, Mile Rock Beach was easy to get to (although stairs not recommended for those with knee issues).

Excelente para disfrutar una hermosa vista y recorrer en familia

Pretty cool city hike. A few serious hills before you get near the water.

In the beginning, there is a steep climb, but the climb is worth it because at the top, you will see such amazing views of downtown SF, the bay bridge, brisbane, and south san francisco. The rest of the hike is easy after that. It was well shaded by the amount of trees there.

What a view!

My #1 favorite spot to hike with my dogs. They love it, and I love it! The views are gorgeous, the hike down to the beach and back is just strenuous enough to make you feel like you actually got a workout, and you can make the hike as long or as short as you want depending on how much beach walking / trail wandering you combine. Water is available for both humans and dogs on the trail.

Nice flat trail and lots of families cooking out. Squirrels are plentiful but not aggressive. Lovely views.

Early on Saturday morning parking was easy and the scenery was awesome. Did the Crissey Field Parkrun which happens every Saturday. Got much busier in the two hours I was there and the fog cleared.

We love this trail! Easy to access from the city and beautiful views.

Pretty views. Cool tucked away houses. Human waste on some of the stairs and someone smoking crack at the base of the stairs. Not an exaggeration unfortunately. Walking in SF has devolved into this.

Nice clearly marked trail. Will be back. Had to cut it short but is a really nice trail.

This has always been one of the trails we go to regularly when we are in the Bay Area. Having lived in the Sacramento area for 11 years, it was one of our favorite. Being a moderate trail it's one that challenges us. I'd recommend this trail to anyone and being on the beach, the weather is great!

Gorgeous views and easy terrain but it's usually too crowded on weekends for trail running. Love the rock maze on the beach trail.
