I would consider this hike moderate (and I'm 75 and out of shape) and worth the climb. There is more than one way down to the ferry boats. We took the long way and it nearly killed me so I would suggest if you are...More

We went to Angel Island thinking that it was going to be some nice hiking, esp up Mt. Livermore to have some great views of the whole San Francisco Bay area. That didn't disappoint!! The hike is relatively easy being only a little over 2...More

This is a modest hike with the steepest section being the long staircase that rises from the ferry/port area. After that, it is a slow rise to the top.

At 781 ft, an easy peasy hike accessible either through Sunset Trail or Ida Trail depending on which direction of the island you are starting from. From the top, you are rewarded with a panoramic view of the bay. Depending on how fast you hike,...More

This is a great outdoor activity for the whole family. The climb is not bad and the reward is always guaranteed (unless it's foggy...): incredible views over the whole bay, all bridges, SF itself and the cute towns on the coastline. We took a short...More

I was in Tiburon doing some filming and we were based here for a week... Stunning views and images of the Bay including the Golden Gate bridge, fog banks and shipping... You'll need a car or sturdy walking legs - but well worth it...

It's on a lovely largely undeveloped park of an island in the middle of San Francisco Bay, accessible only by boat. There are great views in all directions (depending on the fog that day). It's a bit of an uphill hike, made slightly worse by...More

It's a little adventure right next to the big cities. You need to take a ferry, land to the island with a lot of history, hike a mild trail up to the top and enjoy a great view. If you're into history - there is...More

Short hike, incredible views. The loop up one side and down the other gives you wonderful scenes of the Angel Island oak and chaparal. It's enough to feel like an accomplishment but short enough to be good for children who hike.
