Mt. Sutro's Fairy Gates Trail - Search Nearby - Added by Julien Bacal

This can be done as a loop with many easy variations. A lush hike hidden in the heart of SF for a quick post-work nature fix.

The Mount Sutro Open Space hike is one of those gems that's just hiding in plain site. Most people live in San Francisco for years without ever knowing this hike even exists - which is totally fine with us. This 1.8 mile loop is an easy, quick way to get back in touch with nature after a long day. As you'll see once you begin making your way towards to top, there are many different paths you can explore This is also a popular trail for mountain bikers in the know, so keep an eye out to avoid collisions.

This hike is walking distance from SF MUNI as well.

The Enchanted Forest

Shhh... don't tell anyone about this. It's magical for trail running, especially after a rain and in the fog.

A Great City Escape

Loved being able to take a short bus ride and be right into an awesome little city escape. Yes, you can still hear the sounds of the city, but for a quick afternoon hike and awesome lunch spot, I highly recommend Mt. Sutro.
