Great easy hike. Part of the route was closed due to hazardous conditions. Still a lovely easy hike with great views of the Golden Gate Bridge!

Pretty simple hike. Great scenic view. Nice place to have a romantic date or a picnic. You can see San Francisco downtown from the top

When turning into golf club and café head for the first right hand parking lot – the trailhead is on the right side of that lot. The hike was a bit longer than expected though well worth it. If you have a pet-the Park Trail shortcut is not possible due to Coyote warnings. Requires a little navigation to make the loop. Much of the trail is through-woods. You will cross a few roads and walk along the road a short way and through residential neighborhoods toward the end of the hike to pick up the last portion that goes through the cemetery. We walked slowly and took breaks with our dog and it took about two hours. A few minor uphill and down hills. Moderate hike is a good assessment. Views at the top...of the Marin headlands are outstanding! Bring a camera! Unexpected crossing underneath Presidio Boulevard which we have never done! Lots of other hikers along the way. The final 1/2 mile is uphill...behind Mountain Lake Park. If you are tired-take one of the set of steps on the right, to cut through the dog park at the top of the mountain lake park which puts you out at around 8th Avenue and Lake Street; for pick up by whomever you hiked with that parked at the trailhead. It's about 8 blocks from there;)
