Sneath Lane Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Sneath Lane passes through coastal scrub as it climbs up to Sweeney Ridge. As you hike, you will enjoy views of either the Pacific Ocean or San Francisco Bay— and, at the top, views of both. As you reach the ridge, there are views from Pacifica below out to the Farallon Islands, and from Montara Mountain north to Mount Tamalpais, with the Golden Gate Bridge in the foreground. This (minus the bridge) is what explorer Don Gaspar de Portola saw in 1769 when he chose this natural harbor on the bay for a presidio. The hike is relatively strenuous and steep in spots. Sneath Lane is a wide, paved trail easily shared by bikers and hikers. Activities include walking and biking. Dogs must be on leash."

It was a nice trail to the top. Once you are up there you have terrific views. I went with the Boy Scouts and we went on our annual flashlight hike. The trails were wide enough so everyone had enough room to walk next to a person and chat along the way. There were some historic landmarks as well that we visited so it made it more interesting. The hike down was a little treacherous as it was steep and muddy. to meet everyone at the end of Mori Trail worked out well as they had ample parking and porto potties.
