Family Friendly Make this a fun single file out-and-back or add a side trip up to Slacker Ridge.

Description

A hike along the SCA Trail will provide a breathless vista of the Golden Gate Bridge and the surrounding Bay. When the sun is shining and the fog is lifted, hiking along this trail will make memories that will last a lifetime. Every resident of Marin County and San Francisco county need to experience what the Golden Gate looks like from this north side.

The trail is cut into the side of the mountain and faces westward. This well-maintained trail is a very well kept secret - don't miss it!
