Breathtaking
May 2021 • Friends
We went just a few days ago. Driving up into the mountain, into the clouds was beautiful and eery at the same time. The overlook is beautiful just from the parking level, but there is a nice pathway that can be taken. I was toooooooo cold. But, my daughter did it!

Great coastal views
Mar 2021 • Couples
We stopped here after seeing the Muir Woods and drove to the beach. Small parking lot to park in and then walk out to a great overlook on a short trial out to the point to see the coastal views.

There are also some bunkers where the military guarded the entrance to SF Bay during the war ; these “batteries “ are located all over the coastal areas and around the Marin Headlands.

Also a nice bathroom that was open and picnic benches.

Great View
Oct 2020
This is one of the best views of the ocean in the inner Bay Area. Let's you know what is waiting for you up the coast. Very dramatic, but beware, the fog can come in and obscure the view.

Spectacular View!!
Mar 2020
This is a great overlook high above the rocky Marin shoreline. Nice pathways and trails lead to incredibly beautiful views. Good parking and signage to explain the history of the site.

Scenic viewpoint worth a quick stop
Jan 2020 • Couples
If you make the effort to go out to see the majestic redwood trees of Muir Woods, you owe it to yourself to make the short drive to this scenic spot.

Perched high above the sea with a smallish parking lot, you will have 180 degree views up and down the pacific coast. There’s a small path out to the point (maybe 10-yards long) and easy to walk but only room for 10 people or so at the end.

There is also a restroom. You will only need 15 min so even if the parking lot is full, people are generally just coming and going so it would only be a short wait.

Beautiful View
Oct 2019
Stopped here on our way to Stinson Beach. The Overlook is definitely worth stopping You can hear the ocean, and it is a very peaceful place to collect your thoughts. Long stay not required, but great for a few photos and to take in the view of the Northern California Coastline.

Beautiful place to stop by

Great place to stop and relax. Unfortunately there was too much fog to be able to see anything but I heard the view is spectacular! Still a nice little place to stop to stretch and relax.
