The San Francisco Bay Area is truly a hiker’s paradise, whether you’re looking for a hardcore stomp through lush forests or a leisurely walk along the stunning coastline. Here, we’re focusing on our favorite hikes around San Francisco that are under 5 miles, all of which get you to some of the finest views known to man, whether you’re catching a glimpse of the Golden Gate Bridge, straining your neck to see the top of a half-century-old redwood, or looking down into the ashes of a once active volcano.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life.
