This is one of my favorite Golden Gate Canyon hikes. It's basically one of my default to bring new hiking buddies on. Quiet and secluded.

This is a superb trail. I'd never been to Golden Gate Canyon State Park and didn't even know it existed. The trail was beautiful and secluded. My dog and I only saw two other people all day long. Definitely do this one.
