This is a beautiful paved and partial running trail path which is in a decently safe area (daytime) surrounding a lake. It’s great for walkers, joggers, runners, bikes and family and friends. You can also picnic, kayak or row if you choose. Approximately 4.5 miles. :)

Best dog park hands down and nice to have a short hike for owners - used to go 3 times a week with my two fluff balls. Perfect loop if you start on trails at the parking lot then head down to beach via the wide sandy path at North end and then loop back on the beach to the steep stairs under the hang gliders. If it’s high tide sometimes it’s hard to make it past where the pipes are so just check before heading down. Amazing views of the ocean and hang gliders if the weather is right. Lots of ocean treasures to be found along beach (mostly sand dollars).

Just wonderful!

Beautiful park! Nothing steep, just long. Lot of flowers, animals, lakes and quick view of Ocean Beach! You can also stop by at the Japanese Tea Garden and the Botanical Garden if you like. Also the Strawberry Hill is gorgeous! A believe that is a must if you are in San Francisco and you have enough time.

Great urban hike. The fog/rain made the trail down to Clarendon slippery but otherwise easy.

Just a quick walk from the magnificent city viewpoint up the nearby hill and back. It was windy and crowded, but we were all lucky to be there on such a clear beautiful day. This is a world-class view for sure!

Not much of a trail, but one hell of a view

A great hike that can be done solo or in a group.

Beautiful hike, fog or not!

As far as scenic views, it was beautiful. There were a lot of picturesque places and views of the water. However, most of the trail isn’t as nature-y as I would’ve liked. There’s a good mile where you’re literally walking on a sidewalk in a rich neighborhood and the next mile is right next to a highway. All in all, pretty trail but I’d like something a bit more rustic for my next hike

Easy, scenic walk across one of the most recognizable landmarks in the world.

Very windy once you get to twin peaks but worth the view! Otherwise a great hike.

This is a beautiful trail through varied landscape. The western side of Mt Sutro is damp from fog while the eastern side is much drier, with flora changing significantly. Expect to walk through some muddy areas, even in summer.

I would classify this trail as easy/moderate. The trails are well maintained and easy to follow. The landscape is varied and interesting, making for a nice hike.

Good! The view on one side is extremely good. The view on the other side is residential. It’s entirely paved— more of a walking path than a trail. Very windy, but very good view of the SF skyline.

Nice bike ride in San Francisco. Very windy the closer you get to Golden Gate Bridge. Walked my bike at Pier 39.

Awesome

Great views. No shade but not to worry you get a cool breeze from the water.

Last half was very muddy so we took our own way back through neighborhoods which was just as great!

Mt Sutro is beautiful and pleasant to walk through, while still providing a decent challenge with the elevation gain. Getting to twin peaks is also very nice, but you better hope it's not too foggy/windy when you get up there. Also, if you have hiking boots, highly recommended for the mud.

Great short hike with kids and close to Twisted Donuts for a post-hike treat!

Really quite boring except a view of telegraph Hill and bay Bridge.

Beautiful!

More on the easy side, but good walk with my 10 year old.

An easy walk with breath taking views. Always fun exploring the bunkers with the GGB in the background. Sandy and windy, but as expected.
