San Francisco, California

When you’re in the Bay Area, it’s hard to ignore the bright red Golden Gate Bridge, and the view of this iconic landmark doesn’t get any better than from the trails of the Marin Headlands. This crown jewel of the Golden Gate National Parks is home to historic military sites, a 150-year-old lighthouse and an abundance of wildflowers. As you drive up the windy Conzelman Road, pull over at any point and you’ll not only find a breathtaking photo op, but you might also find an unmarked trailhead that’ll lead you down Hawk Hill for an even closer look at the famous bridge ... if you’re feeling adventuresome.
