Family Friendly Because it is paved, it is easy to descend. Parking can be limited so plan on arriving early.

Description

As you descend, the water that seems so far away at the start becomes more and more inviting. This trail is a steady descent along the coast line. The path is easy going most of the way, and near the bottom you become surrounded by trees right up to the campgrounds. Plan on taking a while to complete the return journey up and out though.

Parking can be tough against tourists at the vista points but park by the Golden Gate Bridge and add more to your hike. Worth the trip to the beach.
