Marin Headlands: Miwok Trail to Point Bonita Professional Review and Guide
"The Marin Headlands features 15 square miles of beaches, marsh, lagoon, grass-covered valleys, and coastal hills with magnificent views. There is a large population of wild animals, including bobcats, mountain lions, and lots of hunting raptors. You’ll see about 150 years of military history, with batteries, bunkers, cannons, and missile launching sites all along the hike, adding an eerie contrast to the natural beauty. The walk also includes a tour of Point Bonita lighthouse that takes you through a hand-chiseled tunnel and across a suspension bridge to the little lighthouse sitting dramatically on a deteriorating cliff. The area has many other hikes of shorter and longer length and all kinds of other fun sights for after the hike or another day of exploration. On a tip of land, isolated by hills from Marin traffic, it feels like a small town up the coast rather than just across the bridge from the big city. You also get a good glimpse of what the area was like a hundred years ago. This eTrail also includes suggested nearby attractions, camping & lodging, restaurants, and local outdoor retailers."
