Wolf Ridge Loop

The Wolf Ridge Loop is a five and a half mile hike through San Francisco's Marin Headlands. The Headlands are located just north of the Golden Gate Bridge and feature natural landscapes and historical locations. The hike is fairly vigorous and goes deep into the headlands, exploring areas of military significance. The views are the main reason people enjoy the hike and many previous hikers have described them as breathtaking. The hike climbs nearly 900 feet from sea level and then drops back down to the ocean. Four separate trails are linked on the hike which creates a loop, conveniently leading hikers back to their original starting point. Along the way hikers see the beach, views of the Bay City area, the headlands, the ocean and a variety of historic landmarks. Because the hike is vigorous, hikers should be prepared before they go. Bring plenty of water, comfortable hiking shoes and be willing to take breaks if you are traveling with less experienced hikers. While a hike of this length does not have to be challenging, the terrain and the climb add to the stress, so expect to feel as if you have hiked further. When traveling at a good pace and stopping infrequently, hikes usually last about three hours
