Golden Gate High Ridge Tour
Starting at roads end in Tennessee Valley, the route starts towards the beach but soon picks up the Coastal Trail and ascends steeply up Wolf Ridge. Staying mostly on the high ridge back, it gives great sweeping views of the Golden Gate Recreation Area, Mt. Tamalpais, the Pacific and the Bay weather permitting. It’s a good hike to survey the southern end of Marin and watch ships entering the Golden Gate with a bird's-eye view, but be prepared for the challenging 1,511-foot total elevation gain, windy conditions, and absence of water on this hike.
