One of the most striking trails within the Marin Headlands.

Runner Notes

One of the bay area's best singletrack trails to run along!

Description

A run along the SCA Trail will provide a breathless vista of the Golden Gate Bridge and the surrounding Bay. When the sun is shining and the fog is lifted, running along this trail will make memories that will last a lifetime. Every resident of Marin County and San Francisco county need to experience what the Golden Gate looks like from this north side.

The trail is cut into the side of the mountain and faces westward. This well-maintained trail is a very well kept secret - don't miss it!
