Overview

At every turn of the trail on this wild and rocky northwestern corner of San Francisco, there is another stunning view. Along the way you’ll see hillsides of cypress and wildflowers, views of old shipwrecks, access to the epic ruins of Sutro Baths, pocket beaches, and a new Lookout Visitor Center. You can thank community volunteers who have helped revitalize and restore the native habitat here.

Activities

  • Hiking

    Walk north along the edge of the city--and the continent--on the Coastal Trail. Wander the evocative ruins of Sutro Baths and explore the nearby gardens, part of Sutro Historic District. Scan San Francisco from the Palace of the Legion of Honor overlook and return via the El Camino Del Mar Trail. Wheelchair-accessible trails--made possible by recent improvements--begin from the trailhead at Merrie Way parking lot.

  • Historic Sites

    Begin your visit with a stop in the new visitor center, the Lookout. Learn about the natural and cultural history of the area, and browse the selection of unique interpretive items for purchase.

  • Picnicking

    The West Fort Miley batteries offer a grassy picnic area among three turn-of-the-century gun emplacements.
