Experience the wild western shoreline on the Batteries to Bluffs Trail. This rugged route takes visitors along the cliffs bordering the Pacific Ocean, allowing hikers to explore historic gun batteries, seeps and springs, coastal plants and wildlife, and stunning views. Take the spur trail to Marshall’s Beach, a quiet, isolated area surrounded by rocky serpentine cliffs with breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge. Try hiking this trail near the end of the day to enjoy a long sunset over the Pacific Ocean and the lights of the Golden Gate Bridge.
