Point Bonita Trail


Visitors cross the bridge to Point Bonita Light

The walk down to Point Bonita Lighthouse is a hallmark Bay Area experience that offers panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and the Golden Gate Bridge. On the walk down, you'll pass a popular beach for sea lions to catch some sun. Expect moderate to heavy pedestrian traffic and limited parking. Be careful of the wind as you exit the tunnel and as you walk along the suspension bridge!
