Trail Notes

The Slacker Trail at the Marin Headlands in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in Sausalito, California is a moderate 0.6 mile one-way trail that leads from the parking lot at the intersection of McCullough Road and Conzelman Road and leads over to the SCA Trail.

This trail starts off from the parking lot by crossing McCullough Road and quickly shoots uphill at a fairly steep grade. Despite this trail being moderate, the toughest part of the hike is the initial climb up to the ridge. Once you hit the top of the ridge, you'll find the trailhead for the Slacker Ridge Trail, which leads up to Slacker Hill with views of the bay area and San Francisco. Make sure to hit up the Slacker Ridge Trail before continuing along this one.

After hitting Slacker Hill, or if you plan to skip it, the trail flattens out before heading downhill toward the SCA Trail, but the grade isn't as steep as the initial climb from McCullough Road.

Coastal Trail: This is technically part of the Coastal Trail at Marin Headlands. To continue following the Coastal Trail from here, check out the SCA Trail, and the Julian 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! ✌
