Kirby Cove - Cycling
West of the the Golden Gate Bridge, Kirby Cove's beach and small campground sit on the shore of the Bay beneath the Marin Headlands. On a clear day, expect standout views of the Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge during your entire ride.
This ride is just under 7 miles out-and-back if you start from the San Francisco side of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Destination Distance From Downtown
You will descend to Kirby Cove before the steepest parts of the Hawk Hill climb, but the ride still has plenty of steep stretches. The road down to Kirby Cove is dirt and gravel, and can be tricky to navigate.
Time To Complete
Road condition could be poor after significant rain.
There is no toll for bikes on the bridge.
