Point Bonita Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Take a short stroll to the farthest edge of the Bay Area. Perched on a naked fin of rock jabbing into the ocean, Point Bonita Lighthouse is a lonely sentinel with extraordinary views."
--Matt Heid, 101 Hikes in Northern California: Exploring Mountains, Valleys, and Seashore (Wilderness Press).
"The scenic drama of California’s coastline, along with facets of San Francisco’s gold rush–era history, is concentrated on the short hike to the lighthouse on Point Bonita."
--Tracy Salcedo-Chourré, Hiking Through History San Francisco Bay Area (Falcon Guides).
