“A wide open run out of the Rodeo Valley and up around the top of the Marin Headlands.”— Phil DiGirolamo
At the junction with the Slacker Ridge Trail, near the top, the Coastal Trail becomes singletrack. Though it is a steep climb, be sure to take the Slacker Ridge Trail, which provides access to iconic vistas of the San Francisco Bay entrance and the Golden Gate.
The trail descends towards the SCA Trail, which continues north towards Sausalito. Staying on the Coastal Trail, continue as it bends to the south toward Vista Point and the Golden Gate Bridge.
