Just outside the hostel’s door, the Marin Headlands – part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area – offers a wealth of outdoor adventures. In addition to hiking and biking trails, pristine beaches, and ample opportunities for bird-watching, the Headlands boast some of the best views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and the City by the Bay. The Headlands also border several other popular destinations, including Muir Woods, where you can hike among the coastal redwoods, and Mount Tamalpais, famous for its panoramic views of San Francisco.
Nearby shopping and dining options are just 5 miles away in the coastal town of Sausalito. San Francisco is just a short drive or bike ride away over the Golden Gate Bridge, and is also reachable by ferry from Sausalito.
PLEASE NOTE: public transportation from San Francisco to the Marin Headlands is currently only available on weekends.
