While this gorgeous bayside trail is short, it manages to pack a major punch due to the 470 or so steps along its way. But don’t worry too much about the stairs—there is plenty to distract you. When you’re not enjoying breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, or the Marin Headlands, you can learn about the historic gun batteries you’ll encounter on the cliffs. The trail was completed in October 2007, and construction wasn’t easy. At times, materials were delivered by helicopter to protect the sensitive habitat.
