Golden Gate National Recreation Area Hike from Rodeo Beach to Hill 88

BRIEF SUMMARY A walk from California's coast that ascends through over 100 years of U.S. military history featuring WWII and Cold War structural remains. On your way up to Hill 88 you are sure to see multiple views of the Golden Gate to the south. Few hikes offer more within 1 mile of the coast than a trip to the top of historic Hill 88 in the Marin Headlands. Best of all, much of the area is dog friendly.
