“The perfect way to get out to the Golden Gate Bridge.”— Phil DiGirolamo
Family Friendly Though it is a 6 mile round trip, approaching and viewing the Golden Gate this way promises to be memorable. The climb is all on the first portion up the Morning Sun Trail. The rest is mostly flat.
Once you reach the Alta Trail turn left to head south, and cover the short distance to the SCA Trail. This singletrack will face west towards the Rodeo Valley. Way off to the west, visitors will notice Chronkite Beach and the Marine Mammal Center.
When the SCA Trail ends at the Coastal Trail, take the left and continue all the way out to Gonzelman Road. This approach to the Golden Gate Bridge can't be more impressive.
