Is the trail back open?

Simple trail, 2 hours non stop with only elevation at the beginning and end. Miwok has better views.

Currently closed due to COVID - unable to travel by car to the Golden Gate National Rec Area

CLOSED FOR COVID. the road u need to drive to get to the trail is blocked off due to covid 19.

Closed due to COVID-19 as of May 9, 2020. All roads to Marin Headlands closed, no road parking allowed.

Great Views! you get to see so much of everything. Black sands beach is beautiful. The trails are very versatile, a mixture of flat, LONG stairs, and some rocky trails, and downhills. will really get tour heart going. We walked past an old military bunker? i think? with tunnels, the kids loved it.

Stumbled upon this by accident when stopping to check out the beach area for pictures. Was pleasantly surprised by the gorgeous views after hiking the trail for a bit. Sat on the cliffs edge for a bit to take it all in.

Rodeo beach and the road to get there (Bunker Rd) are currently closed related to COVID-19. Instead I parked at “Coastal Trail Parking and Restroom” off of McCullough Road and hiked down Coastal Trail then walked along Bunker Road to get to the Rodeo Beach trailhead. This adds about another 3 miles, but easy and well worth it to get to the trail, just watch out for mountain bikers! The views along Rodeo Beach Coastal Trail Loop are INCREDIBLE! Very well managed trail and hardly anyone there. No shade so bring your sunscreen!

Awesome views of bridge and cityscape. Definitely recommend to go during sunrise.

Awesome trail. There is a weird section that goes right on a main road for about .3 miles but once you get past that and up on the ridge line it is spectacular

This was an awesome, quick trail! If you don’t want a steep climb, start the trail away from the beach. It’s a wonderful place to just hang out by the beach or listen to the lagoon and bird watch.

Great ocean views! One of my favorite “go-to” locations when it’s sunny and warm.

Couldn’t goto black sand beach - closed for couple days as of 03/15/20 Should be open soon so took a detour & went on to coastal trail panoramic views of the city!! Beautiful trail all over

When a trail includes views of the ocean, I'm hooked! The stairs are tough but worth the effort to get that view at the top. Check out the historic bunkers for a nice break. my least favorite portion of the trail is the last third. In descent, you join the wide fire road that is used by bikes and sometimes they aren't so great at announcing they will be passing you. Stay to the right and you'll be fine. I do enjoy the final mile or so through the below-sea-level wetland space. the temperatures drop slightly (and have your big spray ready) there is mostly no shade on this trail and there are some steep portions with loose rocks. I love my hiking poles as added support for those moments.

Beautiful hike with great views from the top. Slight inclines and some steep declines. There are multiple trail branches however, so if you can then download this map to do this exact hike. At the first fork for hikes - going R will lead you up to a map that is helpful; if you go L at the first fork you’re either relying on a downloaded map or you’re leaving it up to chance.

Great views. Fun, quick easy/moderate loop. The steps down to the beach are a little iffy at the bottom so use a careful step.

We went counter clockwise. The first 3 miles were a pretty consistent up hill. Beautiful views of the bay. Not the best hike in the area, but a fantastic workout. Lots of mountain bikers but it didn’t bother us.

Always fun to run in the headlands. Not too much traffic on the trail and it was well maintained.

Steep but good

Beautiful! Crisp airs hits you in the face like a bat but you’ll love it. The worst part is going up the stairs but it’s not that bad if you take your time. I suck at most things but I was able to do this!

Get a little snack and enjoy the view!
