This dog friendly hike above Rodeo Beach in Marin County is a stones throw from the city. It's a great place to unwind and the views are incredible on a clear day, and the best part is that you can get there for $2 on the 76 Muni Line!

A few blocks east of Goldsworthy's more prominent Spire is this installation of fallen trees snaking through the still standing ones. Wood Line is located within the cypress grove near the intersection of Presidio Boulevard and West Pacific...
