Hike the Dipsea Trail - Steep Ravine Loop

3.8 Miles Round Trip - 1600 ft gain - Loop Trail

Dipsea Trail - Search Nearby - Added by Emily Kent

This is a beautiful, family-friendly 3.8 mile loop hike in Mount Tamalpais State Park. The trail takes you above the clouds with the ocean just below. Just stunning!

This is definitely a worthwhile short hike, with views of the Bay Area, Marin Headlands, Golden Gate, and the San Mateo coastline. It's a 3.8 mile loop which takes you through forests of Redwoods and out to the coastline, even above the clouds on a lucky day.

The trailhead begins at the Pantoll Ranger Station: Follow Panoramic Hwy from Hwy 1 to the junction of Panoramic Hwy and Pantoll Road. You'll find yourself immediately in the Redwood Forest, then will take a dip into Steep Ravine which is an amazing Redwood Canyon. Near the end you'll find a waterfall after climbing the rock stairs. Happy hiking!
