Heaven in the Headlands
Get spring started off right with a hike through the hills and valleys the famed Marin Headlands!
We’ll be right in the middle of wildflower season, so we’ll get to see the last of the early-blooming species, the first of the late-blooming species, and all things flowery in between.
From the top of Hill 88, we’ll take in some of the best views in the Bay Area—of San Francisco, Mount Tamalpais, Tennessee Valley, the Farallon Islands (if Karl the Fog takes the day off), and the San Bruno and Montara Mountains south of San Francisco.
