This short section of the SCA Trail at the Marin Headlands in Sausalito, California is an easy-to-moderate 0.9 mile one-way hike that leads from the junction of the SCA and Slacker Trail down to Conzelman Road, where the trailhead for the Coastal Trail can be found. This trail was tracked heading from the junction with the Slacker Trail after a hike to the Slacker Ridge Trail lookout point.

If you start this hike in the opposite direction, this hike will be moderate-to-difficult since you'll hit plenty of switchbacks heading uphill. If you hike this in the same direction that this was recorded, from the Slacker Trail, your hike will be easy as you gradually hike downhill the entire time.

This trail has plenty of lookout points of the San Francisco Bay area and the Golden Gate Bridge as it runs high above the Marin Highlands' hills. During the Spring you can find plenty of wildflowers growing on the side of the trail too.

Coastal Trail
This is technically part of the Coastal Trail at Marin Headlands. To continue following the Coastal Trail from this one, check out the Coastal Trail (labeled at the southern end trailhead of this recording) and the Slacker Trail (located at the trailhead marked here).

Note
The SCA Trail continues further north for at least another 1 to 1.5 miles from where this trailhead is marked. If you wish to drive to the eastern terminus of this trail, along Conzelman Rd, go to these coordinates.

Parking
A parking lot can be found further south along Conzelman Rd at the next turn in the road at the parking coordinates provided. Hikers will need to walk down Conzelman Road for less than a half-mile to reach the southern trailhead.

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!
