Description

Added by Brian Heifferon

San Bruno Mountain is a loop trail with beautiful views of the Pacific as you hike along the ridge.

San Bruno Mountain is a fun, mellow hike that climbs easily on a well-graded path to the ridge line, and then drops back to the trailhead. Along the way, the trail runs along a creek, ascends through chaparral, and provides excellent views of downtown San Francisco, the East Bay hills, and the Santa Cruz Mountains from the ridge. The spring wildflowers are outstanding; lots of variety and something blooming just about everywhere.

$6 entrance fee (self-registration if kiosk is unstaffed). Maps available at the kiosk. Once past the kiosk, drive past the first lot, under the parkway to the trailhead on the south side of Guadalupe Canyon Parkway. Parking for about 20 cars. Restroom and pay phone available near the trailhead on the north side of Guadalupe Canyon Parkway.

Reviews

Great spot to hike as it's close by with a handful of trails w/various levels of ability. We only did summit loop and the trail gets pretty narrow toward the top so not ideal for 4 year olds but still doable. Would go back to check out the other trails!

NO DOGS - not even on a leash. Be warned. We weren't even allowed to leave her in the car and hike ourselves.
