Great place to get an excellent view of Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco city. It gets quite windy, so do be prepared with a jacket. Well worth a visit.

We drove up just to get some great pics of the city and the Golden Gate Bridge. We went a bit too high up, as the fog obscured the view.

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.

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