Headlands host beauty and history of San Francisco Bay Area

The Marin Headlands are intoxicating and sobering. The hills north of San Francisco are peppered with relics of America's wars, so in the same afternoon you might see wonderful examples of waves crashing amid grim reminders of nations clashing. The Headlands are a section of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, managed by the U.S. Park Service....

Mill Valley, California, United States
Hiking | 5.4 miles
I dropped my son off for a seminar at Fort Cronkhite in the Marin Headlands, right next to Rodeo Beach and had a day to explore. I stopped in the Visitor's Center (easily found, as it's in the old military chapel) and asked for a 2-3 hr hike.  Nice visitor's center, helpful volunteers.  The trail they recommended was a 5.5 mile loop starting at the VC, wrapping around the hills and then...

It's also wide enough for multiple people astride for most of it. You can park either at Rodeo Beach or at the Northeast corner of Rodeo Lagoon (which we did).We started off on the...
