Heavily trafficked & a (sometimes) loud parking lot & park area. Also, can be very windy.

This was a very nice hike. The only challenges were the stairs leading down to Marshall’s Beach and coming back up. We got to Marshall’s at high tide so there wasn’t much of a beach, just lots of rocks on the shore. So take the tide tables into account.
Lots of photo opps! Trees, flowers, the Coast, the Golden Gate Bridge, etc.

Develop see-through trail system it’s a great little urban hike. Plenty of side trails and spurs that will bring you into different neighborhoods. Popular with off-road cyclists.

This is a little spur that will take you up to the summit with some views of Mission Bay and Oakland against Eastbay Hills. Multi use trail be aware of cyclists and joggers if your dog is off leash.

cool trail in the city. a little over grown at parts

Beautiful scenery. Dog friendly. As others have described, it is basically two trails sandwiching a very affluent neighborhood. The first part is very easy. the second portion has a few inclines with stairs. I recommend climbing the sand ladder at Baker beach.

Really nice trail. Has stairs down to beach and across trail. I wouldn’t recommend strollers or wheelchairs. Very beautiful trail there of flowers, trees and some rocks. Take it one step at a time it’s worth the walk/view.

Cool woodsy trail in the middle of the city. Great for kids and dog friendly. You will cross a couple of streets but, not a problem. The trail is easy to follow. At the beginning of the Glen Canyon trail there is a rec center with bathrooms. At the top of Twin Peaks there are restrooms as well. Beautiful rock formations, large trees and sounds of birds.

Great hike . Fairly easy , some stairs so do not recommend strollers . Beautiful views of the bridge .

Parking on the north side and taking a stroller down and up those narrow stairs is ridiculous... second of all, when pedestrians are walking on one side and bicyclists are also taking that side.... it’s ridiculous.

Beautiful as always, a bit muddy today. The overcast skies are not keeping away the crowds. Saturday 11:30am.

Never pass up an opportunity to experience an iconic landmark. This was an easy walk with great views. The weather was overcast with light drizzle which took away from some of the views but I basically had the bridge to myself.

Trail right next to a dog run. Not much of a hike but you’re bound to find a gorgeous view of all parts of the city from many different spots.

Great trail near the city. It has a lot of points of interest near and along the trail. The trail is in good conditions. Beautiful views!

Made a visit here early March to try out some beginner level trail running. The variety of paths and ample cover make for an easy entry to the scene.
Curbside parking is available near trail heads around the neighborhood and the peak offers a nice panoramic view of the peninsula (primarily bayside). There also stands a monument memorializing the Armenian Genocide. If you make a trip to Mount Davidson, I recommend stopping by.

Beautiful beach walk, lots of dog walkers so got dog therapy in! Very clean, everyone picked up after their dogs. Nice to get a cup of tea and people wAtch by the GG bridge. I loved it!

Short loop around golf course. Good for dog walking. Links to additional Presidio trails. If the dog is off leash note that sections are MUPs: watch for cyclists, joggers, large groups.

Ran across the bridge on a Sunday morning into the city. Not very crowded as most people just stop and take pictures without heading onto the bridge. Weather was perfect and surface was dry. I was dropped off on Marin side and picked up a Fort Point. Great views!

This was so much fun. What a beautiful day.

A once in a lifetime walk across the Golden Gate. parked in East Battery public parking. Lots of traffic noise (of course), but nice photography shots.

Beautiful place to walk with your dog off-leash. There are plenty of little rabbit trails you can walk around on and your dog will love it! Probably not as much fun if you don't have a dog. There are really lovely views of downtown SF, downtown Oakland, the Bay Bridge, and the south bay, depending on where you are along this trail. Also, none of the trails except the Philosopher's way are really signed. It wouldn't be easy to get lost, but just be aware! It's also quite muddy at some parts if it's rained recently, but nothing too deep.
