Marin Headlands, San Francisco Reviews
We tried to bike all the way up to the top. OMG it was TOUGH! if you want a great workout, this is a perfect place ! Great view from the top!!
Easily one of the best spots to photograph the Golden Gate Bridge. You can see in all directions really well. We were lucky to have a sunny day. You can walk through some of the Second World War fortifications and imagine how difficult it must have been to construct what they built. A good place to practise your hill climbing if you enjoy cycling.
Awesome place to get our and explore the beauty of the bay area. They offer incredible opportunity for hiking, biking and breaking away from the urban noise ans congestion.
One of the best peninsula’s out there! 5 stars.
Great place. Lots of hiking trails. Beach, but usually too cold to get wet. Dog friendly.
