Well maintained, but natural-feeling trails through variety of habitats. Great views of the city. Not too many folks there hiking, so even on a weekend, it feels like a calming experience.

Easily accessible by car or bike. Paid parking lots within county park area. Plenty of walking trails. Layer clothing and be prepared for windy and inclement (foggy or misty) conditions.

Fantastic hiking and scenic experience in the middle of the traffic nightmare of San Francisco. I especially liked the stand of eucalyptus trees, climbing vines included. Why drive when you can walk somewhere for a change? Nobody will cut you off up there on the mountain. Spend a few peaceful hours hiking the Ridgeline Trail.

There were some... More
