The Marin Headlands encompass superlative views of the Golden Gate and San Francisco Bay. These two trails, one super easy and the other more remote and challenging, take in those views. You see them everywhere—those iconic photos of the Golden Gate Bridge with the sparkling San Francisco skyline behind. No need to purchase a postcard if you venture on either of these short trails in the Marin Headlands. You can snap the photo, but the images in your mind’s eye will be just as lasting.
