A beautiful Hike with amazing views

If you are a plane spotter, love seeing San Francisco or the surrounding Bay Area then head over to San Bruno Mountain State Park. The Summit Loop Trail offers amazing views and for a $6(at the time of the article) entrance fee you can bring a picnic and explore an area that often is overlooked.

You may just catch the Lufthansa or Air France Airbus 380 and other widebodies flying over.


Enjoy and please let me know if you have done this trail. The best time to do it is when there is no fog for the best views.

A few years ago I ran up and down this trail while my daughter was visiting a nearby high school. I don't recall any plane spotting, but it was a very pleasant experience with great vistas.

And here's the official brochure, with a nice map of the park, for this State & County Park (which is operated by San Mateo County):

Another possibility is Bedwell Bayfront Park


which, at least last year, was in a reasonable location to spot planes making the turn from base leg onto final approach.
