The Marin Headlands is one of the crown jewels of the Golden Gate National Parks—very few other metropolitan areas have such vast wilderness right in their own backyard. A short trip across the Golden Gate Bridge offers boundless opportunities to enjoy this expansive land of natural beauty and cultural history. The Headlands consist of several individual sites linked by an extensive network of trails.

Word on the Street

Come to Hawk Hill in the Marin Headlands and get an up-close view of the fall raptor migration with the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory (GGRO), a cooperative program of the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and National Park Service.A GGRO docent gives an hour-long talk about hawk monitoring and identification using photos and other props. At 1 pm, a newly banded wild hawk is brought up and shown to the crowd. After a volunteer discusses GGRO’s banding program, the hawk is released.
