Slacker Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Enjoy unparalleled 360-degree views of San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate, and the Pacific Ocean from the summit of Slacker Hill. From the spacious summit of Slacker Hill, you look down on the best the Bay Area has to offer in terms of vista: the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco skyline, the wooded hills of the East and North Bays, graceful Mount Tamalpais, and the rolling headlands dropping into the expansive Pacific. Though steep, the trail is mercifully short."
--Tracy Salcedo-Chourre, Exploring Point Reyes National Seashore and Golden Gate National Recreation Area (Falcon Guides).
"This quick and straightforward Marin Headlands hike provides one of the best possible views of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, and the bay. While you can drive along Conzelman Road in the Marin Headlands and stop for views, those lookout points can be packed with tourists. The uphill trek to Slacker Hill will get your heart pumping and you may even have the trail to yourself."
