Park a little bit farther from the main parking lot so you can walk along the old railroad track! Tons of photo opportunities.

Such a calming treasure along the Pacific Coast. The short drive from the city is one of the things that makes this place the perfect weekend getaway.

Did this hike from the top of glacier point down to the Merced River. The hike itself was pretty rough especially if you're not used to downhill hikes--or anything downhill. After the hike, we dipped our feet into the river and look up Glacier Point to see how much we achieved in the last few hours. ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE.

One of my favorite things about this trail is the ability to start from pretty much anywhere. There is an abundance of available parking spots alongside the entire trial.

One of my favorite things about this trail is the bench isolating you from the rest of the trail. Sit down and take in the view that consists of the Golden Gate Bridge and the sunset!
