Nature blessed us. The Golden Gate National Parks stretch 70 miles north and south of the Golden Gate, creating a 80,400 acre greenbelt along the Pacific. The Parks are home to ancient redwoods, historic landmarks, miles of trails, dramatic shorelines, rare and endangered species, a lush coastal wilderness, jaw dropping vistas. They are an endless source of adventure and inspiration.

This is the most visited area in the National Parks Service. Come experience this spectacular coastline that truly defines the San Francisco Bay Area.
