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.
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 / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes 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, and site maintainance . I 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! ✌
