Total photo-op. Gorgeous views of the city by the bay, as well as the Golden Gate Bridge. There are trails, bike-friendly, and a nice place to take in the views! Must see if you are visiting SF!

The views are spectacular. Scouting around you will see hidden places used during World War II and before. There is parking, large beach areas, and hiking possibilities in different directions. Be sure to bring a camera.

Follow the signs once you get off the Golden Gate Bridge. Keep going to the top. The views are great! It was foggy when we got there but the fog moves quickly and we were able to take lots of great pictures.

Beautiful spot to capture the views over the Golden Gate Bridge and see San Francisco from the other side. Certainly worth the trip!

Cool. It is usually 60's and foggy. I suggest a light jacket and sweatshirt. Of course shorts might be your thing.
