Best kept secret, one of the most awesome views of San Francisco!!! Gorgeous trails, wish I could have stayed longer! Something to see over every hill. Easy access and as challenging a hike as you want it to be.

Always available parking, honor system contribution to park system, bathrooms available, paved walkways, no dogs allowed, nice picnic areas for kids with picnic tables. Views of downtown San Francisco are really nice on a clear day.

Well maintained, but natural-feeling trails through variety of habitats. Great views of the city. Not too many folks there hiking, so even on a weekend, it feels like a calming experience.

San Bruno Mountain are mountains that run along the southern boundary of San Francisco. It a county park so you do have to pay to enter, not unless you come in on foot. You can come up for a picnic, or for a hike, or for a quick urban getaway. San Bruno Mountain is one of a few places that has original fauna and flora in a around San Francisco. There are several different trails that you can chose to hike. Being a horticulturist, my focus will always be on the plants during my walks. If you are interested in looking at native plants, and butterflies, pick up a book or chart to see how many of the native plants you will see along your walk. Each season brings different stages of the plants. Sometimes with flowers, sometimes not. This a magical place to find serenity. This mountain is prone to fog, but the walks are that much more special with the fog. I could go on and on, but you have to come up and see for yourself. Check out the history of the mountain. The only drawback and I will tell you so you won't be freaked out, is that on the southern side of the mountain there is a big quarry that has eaten up a big side of her.

Easily accessible by car or bike. Paid parking lots within county park area. Plenty of walking trails. Layer clothing and be prepared for windy and inclement (foggy or misty) conditions.
