The Coastal Trail at the Marin Headlands in the Golden Gate Recreation Area in Mill Valley, California is an easy 0.4 mile one-way trail that leads from Conzelman Road over to the Golden Gate Bridge lookout area.

The entire Coastal Trail is made up of multiple trails in this area including the SCA Trail, Slacker Trail, Julian Trail, and more; however, this is the only trailhead labeled 'Coastal Trail' within the park.

Hiking within the initial downhill section, across the street from the end of the SCA Trail, you'll get a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge along with a large field of various types of wildflowers. When you reach CA-101, you'll find a staircase that leads beneath the bridge and over to the Golden Gate lookout point.

Parking: Alternatively, you can park at the Golden Gate lookout point and hike over and up the hill to the SCA Trail to continue along the scenic Coastal Trail.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
