"Getting here is half the fun. The Marin Headlands is 15 square miles of beaches, marshes, lagoons, and lush coastal hills that rise to spectacular views. Wildlife lovers will love this trek, since there’s the chance to spot a number of raptor species, seabirds, marine mammals, and the occasional bobcat and mountain lion. History buffs will be pumped about the 150 years of military history, including bunkers, batteries, cannons, and in an extension of this hike, a trek past on old Nike missile site. Dog lovers love it, well, because it’s a place where leashed dogs can stroll, too."
