Wolf Ridge Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Stark and blessed with stunning vistas, the Marin Headlands are rich in human history and natural beauty. This vigorous walk—okay, let’s call it what it is: a hike—takes you past remnants of the area’s military past to overlooks with breathtaking panoramic views, through a landscape both wild and accessible.

Though the surf looks sketchy and uninviting to swimmers, you’re likely to share the beach with surfers hardy enough to risk the savage undertows. The rolling coastal hills and dramatic seaside cliffs of the headlands have been home to army gun emplacements since the mid- nineteenth century, and it was only with the introduction of long-range missiles that the batteries on the headlands became obsolete. The ruins of these batteries dot the climb."

"This is a scenic Marin Headlands loop that takes you on a “voice control” route so responsive dogs can sniff and gallivant off leash while you enjoy the views stretching above the Gerbode and Tennessee Valleys east and up and down the rugged coastline.

Perks include historic bunkers and batteries along the way for military history buffs, and dogs will wag at the thought of romping off leash on Rodeo Beach as you close the loop along the lagoon back to the trailhead."

Only did part of this, but my brother was awestruck by the views of the Golden Gate Bridge, bay, etc.
