San Francisco, California Map

It’s a great trail and a great view. But, if you go on the small trails up higher, they are very steep and some may find them pretty scary.

Difficult to beat for a city walk!

This was such a wonderful urban hike and one that I definitely want to do again in the near future. If you are visiting San Francisco, this one is an absolute must since it takes you through Chinatown, Little Italy and down along the Waterfront in The Embarcadero.

I have visited San Francisco more times than I can count and still found this hike very worthwhile since it took me on routes I would have never discovered on my own including down steps and through various parks.

I started on a Saturday morning at 7 a.m. which ended up being the absolute perfect time to go since the streets were empty and I could work on my pace without having to navigate other pedestrians. I was able to hike it at 3 miles an hour and I’m currently only a moderately experienced hiker.

Definitely do this hike! You won’t regret it!

Beautiful coastal beach trail that's easy and open and there's to see of doggies to see!

There were a lot of good trails to wander around and it was challenging enough to remain interesting. Had a lot of fun!

There is so much to see and it is fairly easy for everyone to do! The cave is definitely something you can’t miss!

Easy trail for the whole family

very pleasant and easy walk! very distracted by all the cute dogs. Don't come here if you want a challenging walk/hike.

One of our happy places, especially the leash free beach for the pups.

Good walk by the shore. Can take nice pictures with Golden gate on the back drop.

Even though it’s not too long, you can take little paths here and there which have stairs and makes it a fun workout. The weather was beautiful and a lot of different points of the trail felt private like you were alone exploring fun tunnels and caves.
