Scenic Lookout
“If you have a car or are willing to hike for a few hours, this is best general area to get amazing sunset views and get a glimpse of the entire Bay Area. I have a secret spot that I can tell you about that avoids the more crowded lookout points and links up with the nearby trail system. ”
