Just over the Golden Gate Bridge lies a hiking gem riddled with trails-- the Marin Headlands. This now protected 2,100-acre area of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area survived WWII military defense fortifications and dodged development in the 70s to emerge as a trail mecca unbelievably only minutes away from San Francisco. This challenge brings you to the summit of the 5 major hills in the Headlands, all have trails and stunning ocean views. For those who want to dial it up, try hitting all 5 in one day.
