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 independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, and no goal to profit - we share trail data for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes money and a lot of time and effort (including espresso shots) to run the site. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
