Pretty views but with overgrown bushes & pretty flowers found spider & ticks as you get closer to slide ranch. Taller shrubbery near goats not a good combo. Walked on the road above. Although it is a short quick trail with beautiful views.

Beautiful hike! Steady incline all the way up, but fun places to explore along the way to take it easy. The view is stunning all the way. Exposed though, no shade.

As this is dog friendly, dog walkers need to do a better job of disposing of their dog waste, there's frequently plastic bags on the side of the path (there's even a garbage at the trailhead guys!) I do this almost once a week, and my favorite part of this walk is the grouping of trees you get to about half a mile in, with a beautiful overlook of the nearby valley (and the bay on the other side of the path). Provides some nice shade and breeze.

I was so happy at the end of the hike. I enjoyed every minute of it. Definitely will be going back.

A nice flat walk to the beach, wonderful breeze too! We did see a snake in the lower portion of the final beach walk (there will be a lower and upper path, lower goes through the wilderness while upper takes the foothills) in the grass, but he didn't bother us and we didn't bother him! Next time I'm going to bring a blanket and some snacks to eat on the beach!

Definitely recommend this trail, and I've done it a number of times. The traffic getting there from the 101-1 interchange on weekends is the most difficult part. The trail slopes gently downwards towards the ocean, and is very wide and in good shape. There are a lot of great side trails to campgrounds, or up to the tops of the ridges, if you feel like doing anything more difficult. The beach itself is great, and the lookout is definitely worth the climb.

This was a beautiful trail hike to take early in the morning as the fog is rolling in. If you go counterclockwise you tackle the uphill climb first and open up to beautiful views of the ocean, rodeo beach, and the city. As you wind past The beach and over the cliffs wonderful views of the Golden gate Bridge and San Francisco highlight your hike. Take the time to stop and check out the lighthouse and all that historic armaments.

Great place to take a quick walk. My partner and I completed this in about two hours (including time spent watching the waves on the beach). There are two paths that will get you to the beach (lower and higher). Both are great and very scenic!

Holy wow! No bike next time. Hiking only!!!!

A great trail with good variety. Mostly uncovered, so good to go early!

Great trail with little ones. I had a 6,3 and 1 year old and we were able to do a nice 1.5 hour walk on this trail. Tons of wildflowers and so much lush greenery. Very beautiful.

This is a great short trail run! The 1st hill is humbling but short and takes you to a private beach. Perfect also just for a hike and end the day with a picnic at the beach!

We parked down by Pelican Inn and started clockwise on the trail. About a mile in we hit the sign that said CLOSED. So we backtracked, ended up bailing, and took the Heather Cutoff Trail up to catch up with the Coastal Trail along the ridge. Lovely hike hut not long on Redwood. Probably would have more luck hitting Dias Trail off of Highway 1. Also - said no dog allowed. We didn’t realize that so brought ours along. SO MANY TICKS! Do a good check when you’re done.

This was a fun, easy trail. Nice flowers and views. It’s worth going up to the Lookout for the views of the Tennessee Valley and beach below.

Great views. No crowds.

This is such a pretty and easy hike. Beautiful wildflowers along the way. The best part is the ocean at the end of the trail. Parking is very limited though. Arrive early or late.

Beautiful trail; my pup and I loved it. No pets are allowed when you turn right at the first junction though. We went left instead and just turned around at the intersection with Bunker Road.

Fun hike around Rodeo Beach! Lots of side trails to explore and good views.

Perfect hiking for solo. If the sky is clear you can see the city, the bridge, Sausalito and the ocean. Very windy, and no shades at all. With extra offroad loops it takes about 2,5hours.

lots of different flowers. would be better view without fog/clouds. no shade initially for the incline, second half of hike shady.

My partner and I took our pup on this hike. We went counter clockwise, which was a really nice relatively gentle incline for a couple miles. The views of the ocean on the way up were magic, and the lush forest settings on the way down were epic. There is a trail reroute because of bridge construction; which will require you to cross a creek about 10 wide, and deep enough to get your feet very wet. I really loved

Great view of the Golden Gate Bridge and the city, but the rest was a pretty boring hike. It’s a good exercise for the weekend and nice if you’re visiting the city.

Tennessee valley trail.

Dogs are allowed. There were lots of them. Very uphill but great views and coming back is nice and downhill so it’s worth it.

Amazing hike with great views. Unfortunately, the Instagram-famous swing on the beach looks like it has been cut down. Disappointing, but still a lovely hike and worth the visit.
