Everyone In San Francisco Must Visit This Epic Waterfall As Soon As Possible
San Francisco is an absolute stunner, but wait until you escape the city limits. Go in any direction and you’ll see some of Mother Nature’s finest work, but taking the road north—which starts pretty marvelously by crossing the Golden Gate Bridge—into Marin County is an absolute must for any San Francisco resident or visitor. This epic waterfall is one reason why.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
The whole hike is roughly 8.4 miles out and back. We highly recommend getting to the trailhead early (parking can be tricky the later it gets). Weekdays are, of course, less crowded. There are also several other trails to explore in the Point Reyes National Seashore area. If you’re craving more cascades, though, check out these other beautiful waterfalls near San Francisco.
