Coastal Trail


A hiker looks out at scenic view of the pacific coastline from the Coastal Trail in Marin Headlands on a bright sunny day.

The Coastal Trail is the true connoisseur's way to drink deeply from the quintessence of the California experience. As it threads through the three counties of the Golden Gate National Parks (Marin, San Francisco, and San Mateo), the Coastal Trail treats adventurers to spectacular Pacific vistas, iconic chaparral hills, soaring hawks, rippling fog, verdant stands of trees, and glimpses of California's cultural history. Get your sip along any segment, and enjoy some of the best landscapes and seascapes in the Golden State.
