Discover the best of the panoramic views of San Francisco’s Golden Gate. Winding across the steep and rolling headlands of Marin County, the Coastal Trail climbs to viewpoints of The City, framed by green hills and then crosses the Golden Gate Bridge and follows the surf along Baker Beach. The trail winds through dense forests of cypress and eucalyptus to some great viewpoints on Lands End before reaching Seal Rocks. You’ll find the best panoramic landscapes along the wide, sandy Ocean Beach south, through the Golden Gate Park to Fort Funston.
