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.

Before you leave...

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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups 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, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
