Hiking in Marin

Outdoor Activities at Cavallo Point

You don’t need to go far from the city to get outside! Leave the hustle and bustle behind and head to Cavallo Point, nestled within the 75,000-acre Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Take in stunning views, drink in the fresh air and soothing breezes, and explore! With more than 350 acres of trails for running, hiking, and biking, plus wide-open spaces and protected areas, there’s plenty of space for you and your family and friends to slow down, stretch out, and recharge your batteries. The tranquil setting within America’s most popular National Park  is the perfect place for a much-anticipated (and well-deserved) escape. 

From Cavallo Point, guests can easily access the Marin Headlands, Horseshoe Cove, Battery Yates, Battery Cavallo, Battery Duncan, Yellow Bluff, and the Fort Baker Bay Trail, among other nature areas. And, of course, the conveniences of the city aren’t far away. Start your day with a warm summer “rocking chair” moment, with coffee and fresh pastries on your deck. Spend the afternoon exploring hiking trails, flying kites on playful Bay winds, or biking to breathtaking views. In the evening, curl up by the outdoor fire pit with a nightcap or watch the city sparkle from an outdoor dining table. Take a break at Cavallo Point and get back to nature – your body, mind, and spirit will thank you.

Outdoor Dining

We believe food just tastes better outdoors – and at the legendary Farley Bar, every seat is the best seat in the house. Dine on breakfast, lunch, and dinner al fresco, feast on weekend brunch, or sip on a nightcap under the stars. Take-out options are also available for a picnic meal or a relaxed dinner in your room or suite.

Hiking and Running

Lace up your hiking shoes and hit the trails. With more than 350 acres of trails to explore, there’s plenty of space to roam just steps from your hotel room. Take the path less traveled or try one of our guided hikes, such as Chapel Steps to Bay Trail or a Marin Headlands Nature Hike.

Hop on one of our Vintage Electric bikes and explore the beautiful spaces beyond the Golden Gate, or let an experienced guide take the lead with a guided tour. Bike rentals come with a helmet, lock, and a map of the Bay Area. 

Kayak the San Francisco Bay


One of the most spectacular ways to explore Cavallo Point is from the water, and just a short stroll from the resort, you’ll find kayaks available for guided tours on San Francisco Bay. These tours are perfect for first-timers and experienced paddlers alike! After a safety and instruction orientation, head onto the bay for incredible views and a brand-new perspective.
