Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely views of the ocean on this very short walk. Not far from Muir Woods so worth a detour if you have a car. Not a big walk though more about admiring the view.

Short walk from the small car park, and beautiful views across the ocean. Lovely spot to watch the sunsets and only a short walkable distance from Muir beach

What a great view! We stopped around lunch mid-week at the end of September. The weather was perfect with not too much wind. We eat lunch at one of the picnic tables and were able to make use of the toilets before we left.

When you're already visiting Muir Woods it seems crazy not to stop here either before or after.

This is an awesome stop with a great perspective view of the ocean. It is a cool staircase which is easily accessible. We were little taking pictures of us jumping for joy at this spot. Really cool and highly recommend!

Muir Beach overlook is one of the attractions and it is situated in the north of San Francisco. Tourists can have nice view and Pacific Ocean is on the western side and the spot is on the top of the mountain. Parking and rest room facilities are there.

Love, love, love this coastal hike. Upon arrival, parking is easy. At the lot, there are two overlooks; and trailhead to Slide Ranch. 1 mile easy hike to the ranch which has goats; chickens, fennel garden; picnic tables; and 7 glamping tent rentals overlooking the ocean, and they actually have beds inside the tents. From the ranch there's a short trail to the tide pools, where we sat on the rocks watching the waves crash. It was a spectacular site! This is truly an amazing beautiful coastal hike!. Pacific Ocean views are absolutely breathtaking!! A MUST SEE!! An easy short hike for all ages.

Great short stop worth seeing, Views of Muir Beach to south and in distance Point reyes and Stinson beach areas in the north. But, everywhere beatific views of the ocean and bonus a few historic areas from WW2 where soldiers watched the coastline in case of enemy encroachment.

Of all the places we visited in Hwy 1, this overlook was very memorable. My young boys loved walking along the ridge of the mountain and the views from the overlook were spectacular. There are also some old war lookouts that my boys enjoyed climbing in and out of. Loved this little stop!

We had a long drive through Marin County and I barely survived my motion sickness, but I was rewarded with glorious views of the sea such as those from this outlook. On Highway 1 heading North.
