The Slacker Ridge Trail at Marin Highlands, in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, in Sausalito, California is an easy 0.5 mile out-and-back trail that leads from the Slacker Trail up to the top of Slackers Hill. The view from the top of Slackers Hill is well worth the short hike up, with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, the bay, and the surrounding hills.
This trail has a gradual uphill climb from the trailhead and is for the most part an easy hike; however, you must hike up the Slacker Trail first, which has a much steeper grade.
Lookout Points: The first lookout can be found near the edge of the trail at what appears to be a fork in the trail (stay right) with views of the bay. The second lookout is at the top of Slackers Hill, which gives a 360-degree view of the San Francisco Bay area.
