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 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.

We hiked the Ida trail to the summit & took the Sunset trail back down to the Perimeter road since we were camping. The Ida trail is steep & shorter, while the Sunset trail has long switchbacks & not steep. We preferred the Ida trail...More

No place in the bay can you get a better 360 view of our great SF bay. You can see three bridges, sailboats, barges to large ships. The hike is great from any starting point. In the spring you will see wild florwes in full...More
