Beautiful train with a great Finale

Beautiful and easy trail for either walking or biking. The trail ends at a beautiful little beach with almost no one ever on it! Not much more you could ask for!

This is an easy hike to the beach and the scenery is beautiful. There are plenty of other trails that connect to this trial is you want to increase the intensity. It is very nice walk through the valley and down to a lovely beach.

easy, gentle hike to the beach. very often children and families on the trail. No dogs on the trail to the beach, but there are many uphill side trails where a dog can be taken. the trail leads to a lovely, protected cove. I have been there many times and always enjoy going.

This is a hike we usually take our out-of-town visitors on and it is always a hit. It is easy to do with small children and there are several trail options, so you can choose that one that works best for you and your group. This takes you to the beach and you can walk and explore there. You can... More

Into the hills, out to the ocean--easy hikes, tough hikes. Short hikes, long circuits. Views, exercise, wildlife. Want to get out of The City to explore wild California? Just five miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge, take the Highway One exit to Stinson Beach, and turn right at the light just before the Dipsea Cafe. (You might want to... More

Approximately 5 miles from the visitor center to the Ocean. Two trails provide a flat avenue or a steep one. Our trip allowed us to see local birds and shorebirds, harmless snakes, rabbits, hawks, lizards and even Whales in the pacific Ocean. Beautiful, crashing surf discourages one's entry into the water but a truly spectacular scene. Bring water and a... More

This is one of Marin County's treasures! A fairly level hiking trail with good parking that will lead you through wonderful Headlands terrain to an idyllic ocean beach! It's a great spot for all ages and the ocean beach is exquisite!

This was a highlight for us. We did a lot of hiking on our trip and this was so awesome. 4 miles round trip and the beach, cliffs and rugged coastline was so beautiful. We also hiked up to the bunker and the view from there was amazing.

This is not a strenuous hike, about 2 miles in, 2 miles out. There is a high path with easy ascents and a low path through gorgeous scrubbery. The prize at the end is a bay with a glorious view of San Francisco.
