Easy to access, San Bruno Mountain hiking trails offer beautiful views of the Bay Area from secluded spots of open fields with spring flowers, meadows and grasses, and on clear days you can see the Farallon Islands.

A good hike if your a hiker. When you get to the top by the antennas a beautiful view of the other side. Allow yourself at least two hours if your going to do the whole trail. Remember you can always take off clothes but you can't put on clothes once you start.

We see SB Mountain from our kitchen window. Only by accident (looking at a bike map) did I realize it's a parti with hiking trails, etc. The park abuts the city line, easy access and parking, trails long and short, challenging and easy. Great views of the city AND we saw a golden eagle!

for the physically fit, hike up this giant from any side, for the rest of us pay the six dollars to get into the park and drive up Radio road to the parking lot at the top, get out of your car and hike the ridge. dogs NOT ALLOWED, nor smoking nor alcohol.

This park is the best discover in San Bruno! Without too much driving nor too much effort on hiking, I am already on the top of the San Bruno Mountain. When the first time I hiked this park, I was shock by the beauty of the view. Stunning view of SF, downtown and the Oakland Bridge. When I miss these... More

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.

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.
