Trail Notes

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. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
