10 Incredible Hikes in Marin County, CA

We're a little bias, but we think we have the best backyard in the country.

A handful of us here at The Outbound are based in San Francisco and as you can imagine, a regular dose of the outdoors is crucial to our happiness (and sanity). Lucky for us, we're just a short drive over the Golden Gate Bridge from Marin County, home to hundreds of miles of hiking trails and some of the most gorgeous coastline in California. Not to mention, some of our favorite restaurants in the Bay Area are in Marin, which means every hike in the headlands is followed by a tasty meal (shout out to the bistec sandwich and fried plantains at Sol Food in Mill Valley!).

Whether you're heading up to Marin for a day hike or you're looking to spend the weekend (we recommend a night or two on the coast), you'll never run out of idyllic hiking trails, spectacular views, and good food to eat. Check out some of our favorites below and discover more hikes in Marin here.
