Video: Via Adventures - Marin Headlands

Posted by Megan McCrea on September 21, 2017

The hilly peninsula known as the Marin Headlands boasts spectacular views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge, but this part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area has so much more to see and do: You can watch for migrating brown pelicans, grebes, egrets, and blue herons at Rodeo Lagoon; take a hike on one of the park's many trails; or explore one of the six named beaches in the headlands. There's also plenty of history on hand, as well: The Point Bonita Lighthouse still shepherds ships safely through the Golden Gate, and it's open to visitors Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. 

Don't miss the other destinations in the Via Adventure video series, including Mount Shasta, with more coming soon.
