Very steep entrance with lots of stairs but then great cursing just off the western edge of the ridge and spectacular views from Slacker Hill.

Great views, flowers, and wildlife. Sometimes very foggy but still a really good walk. Amazingly deserted for the proximity to big urban center.

The ascent was rough for me. But worth the view!!

Good close to SF exercise hike with good Pacific views.

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.

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 two hour hike with incredible views of the bay at the top. Took a detour to check out the houses on Wolfback Ridge, and another to take in the stellar view at the little cutoff in the middle of the SCA trail. Don’t miss that one! Note that the map is wrong, there’s no Julian Trail from Bunker Road to Rodeo Valley Trail. Looks like it never even existed either.

I accessed Upper Fisherman's Trail from the Coastal Trail at the top of Conzelman Road. There are 296 steps down to the road where you access the rest of the trail to the beach. Some great views and the steps are a quick workout. The trail map showing 0.5mi is not quite right as the rest of the trail to the top is not included. Great trail, doesn't take much time, but good to be in shape for the ascent!

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.

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.

Hiked clockwise from the parking lot across from the east side of Rodeo Lagoon. Hiking time: 2 hr 34 min.

Great views, and wild fennel all along the trail. Smells amazing! Pretty easy hike!

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.

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.....

Rodeo Valley Trial does NOT allow dogs! I almost got a ticket, but thankfully a couple with dogs warned me they just received a ticket from the park ranger ahead and I was able to turn around in time. I started from Bunker Road and went up the Rodeo Valley Trial. The mile I made it along the the trial was chill. Tons of cyclists there.
