Hiking the San Francisco Bay Area

Great trail, pretty easygoing except for the steep stairs running down to the beach.
We went at low tide and did some tide pooling. You'll need good shoes for this, as the rocks can be extremely slippery. During the winter, be on the lookout for seals. When we went the park rangers only blocked off the public end of the beach and forgot about those of us coming up from the other side. My husband and I had to back track a goodly distance after coming up on several large seals (elephant seals?) blocking our trail.
Overall a good trail, though. Fun for kids, but don't let them out on the rocks as its dangerous for them AND the creatures living in the pools.
Don't forget: look but don't touch!
