Let's Go Hiking!

Sweeney Ridge Trail Hike in San Bruno, in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Hike will take place rain or shine.

This is about a 5.8 mile hike path with impressive views of the Pacific Ocean and the San Francisco Bay. We'll hike up and back past the Portola “Discovery” Site with the option to visit the Nike Missile site.

This hike is considered moderate. Elevation about 900 feet. Dogs ARE allowed on this hike. We’ll be walking on both paved road and dirt track. If we get any rain before then, it may be muddy in parts. Please note there is limited shade on this hike.

Important: Wear a hat and bring enough water, snacks, and sunscreen for about 3 hours. Hike will take place rain or shine.

Street parking is available; trailhead is about a 12-minute Uber ride from San Bruno BART

HCSF events are currently for fully vaccinated and boosted people only and masks are encouraged but not required. Keeping everyone’s safety in mind, we are looking forward to seeing you at one of our many upcoming events.
