Best kept secret, one of the most awesome views of San Francisco!!! Gorgeous trails, wish I could have stayed longer! Something to see over every hill. Easy access and as challenging a hike as you want it to be.

Always available parking, honor system contribution to park system, bathrooms available, paved walkways, no dogs allowed, nice picnic areas for kids with picnic tables. Views of downtown San Francisco are really nice on a clear day.

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.

San Bruno Mountain are mountains that run along the southern boundary of San Francisco. It a county park so you do have to pay to enter, not unless you come in on foot. You can come up for a picnic, or for a hike, or for a quick urban getaway. San Bruno Mountain is one of a few places that... More

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.

Finally had the chance to climb up to San Bruno Mountain. It's definitely a great view, especially on a clear day. It's also a good, short hike that will get your heart pounding and work your lungs and legs. The trail is steep and rocky in places. Along the way I passed grassy areas and wooded areas. There were some... More
