Descend through a grove of cypress, eucalyptus and pine to a one of a kind view of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco Bay looking east to a panorama view of the city.
The steep, mile-long trail to the cove begins at the parking area above Battery Spencer on Conzelman Road-eye-level with the bridge's towers. Kirby Cove also features a campground with five campsites, each accommodating up to 10 people (parking restricted to three vehicles per site). Pit toilets, barbecue pits, picnic tables, and fire rings are available, but there's no water for drinking and hygiene.
Kirby Cove Campground OPEN April 1- November 30.
