Description

Beginning from a small, easily accessible wooden staircase at Stanyan and 17th, Historic Trail is a great starting point for a run on Mt. Sutro. Verdant, lush, and lovely throughout the year, it's a perfect place to enjoy some wilderness without even leaving the city.

Historic Trail intersects or meets up with Fairy Gates, Edgewood, West Ridge, South Ridge, and Quarry Road trails, making it easy to reach the summit or create your own loop run. It is often muddy, especially after wet weather, so plan footwear accordingly!

Flora & Fauna

Wild blackberries surround a large portion of the trail and tall eucalyptus and acacia trees provide ample shade. English Ivy gives the whole place a magical fairy tale feel but watch out for poison oak!
