This map covers everything south and east of Andrew Molera State Park over to Sierra de Salinas near Hwy 101, and southward to Ragged Point & Windy Point in the southern Big Sur coastline.

San Francisco Trail Maps

The Bay Area is one of most populated areas of the Golden State, although it does offer some of the best “city hiking” anywhere around. Located next to the coast, this area has beaches, cliffs, waterfalls, redwood groves and numerous local mountains.

Several brands of hiking maps exist for the San Francisco Bay Area. National Geographic, Tom Harrison, Wilderness Press.
