Introducing Marin Headlands
The headlands rise majestically out of the water at the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge, their rugged beauty all the more striking given the fact that they’re only a few miles from San Francisco’s urban intensity. A few forts and bunkers are left over from a century of US military occupation - which is, ironically, the reason they are protected parklands today and free of development. It’s no mystery why this is one of the Bay Area’s most popular hiking and biking destinations. As the trails wind through the scenic headlands, they afford stunning views of the sea, the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco, and they lead to isolated beaches and secluded spots for picnics.
