Happened to go on a day where the sun was out so it was a plesant walk. if you are walking around the base/exterior of Stow Lake, it is pretty easy. The steps going up Strawberry Hill are a little steep but not that hard. Not much of a view at the top since the trees are blocking , but a nice place where there were numerous people reading. The most unpleasant thing was the dirty pond/reservoir that was located around the middle of the hill right behind the falls. Huntington Falls is pretty for an artificial falls since it pools between stepping stones (man-made) and runs into Stow Lake. The smell close to the falls was not a fresh scent, but I won't say it was terrible or unbearable. Overall, a pleseant hike/walk away from the city.

One of my favorite trails. Can’t get lost here and there are sections where you get to work your legs. The views are breathtaking and the weather is always perfect. Heavily trafficked.

A walk on the wild side of San Francisco. This can be an easy hike or a strenuous one, depending on which side trails you take. The stairs to Mile Rock Beach are quite steep and long, but well worth it. Although crawling with tourists, it’s a beautiful spot.

Great views all the way. Coming up will get your breath pumping but it’s pretty short. Got there with my dog and saw the no dogs sign, took her anyways and saw other dogs too. She loved Marshall beach!

Very nice walk and green sanctuary in the city! Part of the trail was closed due to the fact some trees were being cut down

this is more of a dog park with a lot or almost all dogs off leash. very friendly but can be overwhelming to smaller dogs. The trails are fun and pretty easy to complete but the best part is the beach where you can find a whole bunch of sand dollars and shells.

Great trail- first two sections along the Southern end were my personal favorite, in large part due to the welcoming and awesome people along the way! Visitacion Valley Greenway was magical, as was the scenic but difficult portion through Forest Hills and Golden Gate Hikes. We got to the end at Lands End right at sunset- highly recommend!

Went for sunrise. Beautiful easy walk. Would recommend getting there at 630 and stay until 740am for sunrise viewing

Easy hike but very crowded. The road to get to the peak was more exciting but most people parked at the peak anyway.

Beautiful hike in the middle of the city. Trails are still a bit muddy from the recent rain; there's lots of deeply shaded areas so I imagine the trails are always a bit damp. Views are lovely, probably best enjoyed in the afternoon. On a weekday morning, had the place pretty much to ourselves (only saw one person). Some trails were rocky so watch those ankles.

Beautiful retreat within the bustle of San Francisco. Many winding trails through the eucalyptus trees - not great signage but it isn’t large enough to get truly lost.

A lovely, fairly gentle trail. Stunning views. A little muddy in places, and a fair few steps, but loved the hike.

Two sets of beautiful mosaic artwork on stair risers. Amazing view from the top

Great flat trail, easy walk, beautiful views. We decided to start out at Palace of Fine Arts. As we followed the trail we saw signs to go to the Presidio then across the Golden Gate Bridge, which we did instead of looping right back. Ended up at the border or Marin County, which felt like an achievement, then headed back to Palace of Fine Arts. This was a doable, stress-free round trip of seven miles with small breaks when needed.
