Easy walk down to the beach. You can book to camp there too. Finding parking on top was a pain since there’s very limited space. There was no swing when I went.

Great hike!! I’ve done it twice now and love it for a solid work out. Be aware that it’s actually 6.6 miles roundtrip, not 5.3. Also, the first 2-3 miles on the way back from Muir beach is almost entirely up hill... something to keep in mind. Highly recommend if you want a good work out.

We are tied to hikes that allow dogs. We are running out of places but happy to find this trail. Coming from the East Bay in Walnut Creek it was very pleasant to have a sea breeze and a touch of fog. Not the typical trail found in the east bay. We loved it. Only managed 3 miles but a nice get away from home.
Lots of birds, brown pelicans are abundant here.

Really enjoyed the first 2/3 of this trail... the steady ascent up the Miwok worked our lungs but didn’t overwhelm us, and the views as we picked up the Coastal were lovely (we were lucky enough to get a fog-free, sunny day). We were tired and cut over back to the parking spot along the Lagoon trail instead of going down to the point, will have to check that out next time.

Great hike to a great viewpoint. It's essentially walking up a very steep road to a wide, flat viewpoint above the Marin Headlands. Great views of the GGB, Kirby Cove, Fort Baker, Mt. Tam, and much more remote than the throngs you get down on the Battery Spencer trail. Don't miss this; stop at small gravel parking area next to the round about at the intersection of Conzelman and McCullough, and hike down through the bushes and across the road at the gate. From there it's all uphill. View is definitely worth the effort.

Short steep hike that has a rewarding finish! Beautiful views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge

The bottom part of this “hike” is a confusing mixture of parking lots and unmarked segments of “trail” some of which join up with each other, some of which just wander off and dead end. If you, like me, hike to get out in nature and away from people, don’t bother with the bottom third of the trail. Park near rodeo beach and go from there. If you’re looking for the scenic, tourist spots then that’s ok too and the bottom third of the hike will be perfect for you. Once you get out of the crowds, this trail is stunning, even on foggy days.

Just had a little time in the morning so we just did the coastal trail out to the lookout point and then back and up to the batteries. Very pretty, cool history with the batteries. Love the west coast shoreline.

Easy family hike around the rodeo lagoon - half of it next to the parking lot / road but the rest is beautiful and rodeo is a great beach to spend the day and relax. Some nice little coves to the left to explore too

Great short hike with beautiful vistas of the ocean and the headlands. Best to go during the warm part of the day due to the typical windy conditions.

The most amazing views! Walking down is the easy part because it’s all downhill but going back up is a little more challenging! I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

The views of the city and ocean is great. Not really a hike though.. you park your car walk up some stairs and you're there.

Very easy trail, did it in under an hour...was verrrrry windy, cold around sunset...the best part was Slide ranch at the end, and being greeted by cheerful kid goats who stuck their heads through the fence yelling at me when I arrived! Ok, well I think they mistook me for one of the ranch girls who walked up in a group to feed them all shortly afterward, but still it was a fun and cute surprise. Beautiful scenery, and lots of deer too...mostly flat and now I know a good trail to bring my Mom when she visits, as she has a bad hip and is not great for hard hikes...

Great view of the ocean and great weather for hiking. This is more of a hard hike because of it he distance.

I actually did this the other day but with an add on to the middle green gulch trail on the way to muir, it adds a little variety for plants and air-type. In all I hiked for 9.5 miles and I was tired coming back, but if you just stick to this nice trail it is pretty nice...I think there are much prettier side paths off the fire road that are really worth exploring and I hardly see people on them. I almost stepped on a baby bunny at one point, didn't even move! So cute...wear sunblock!!!!

Nice, short historic trail that traverses an historic battery and then to an up close and personal view of the GGB. I give it 3 stars for the crowds, 4 stars for the view.

Beautiful scenery. This hike is relatively easy (some parts uphill), and goes through various landscapes, from coastal views to historical landmarks. Perfect time of the year to catch the blossoming flowers. Make sure to go to the lighthouse. Unfortunately for us, NPS only allows access to it on Sundays from 12:30pm to 3pm this time of the year.

Solid hike. Not too intense on the way to Muir beach but definitely a work out on the way back but worth it with the views. Apply sun screen very little to no shade!

- From Miwok trail to Muir beach: 3.3 miles. Out and back: 6.6 (parked on Marin drive)
- Intense work out with lots of uphills and downhills
- Views: city/north bay and coastal

Beautiful hike that includes histrionic elements along the Nike missile site and the gun battery.

Such a beautiful hike. well worth the views!!! I am in no way fit.... just started hiking recently and actually found this one pretty easy.....

just hiked it yesterday. nice views, but I never did find the waterfall mentioned above.

Sundays are quite busy, but Mondays this trail is nearly empty. There are a lot of wildflowers and it is currently early April. beautiful trail.
