“A mega-popular run hitting many Bay Area attractions in one fell swoop.”— Nick Wilder
The trail is built on the bed of an old rail line, so it's mostly dead-level. One short section has been re-routed around an eroded part of the cliff and has a long, steep section of stairs. You could optionally turn around at the stairs to avoid that difficulty and still have a wonderful run. Also, be sure to take the little detour on Mile Rock Trail!
A private train was built to connect the tourist attractions, and at 5 cents a ride, was quite a bargain for the amazing views it gave riders then, and runners today.
