GGNRA & the Marin Headlands Guide for 2017

GGNRA & the Marin Headlands Guide for 2017

The GGNRA and the Marin Headlands

The GGNRA (Golden Gate National Recreation Area) is a sprawling series of national parks that spread from the western and northern coastlines of San Francisco across the Golden Gate to the Marin Headlands, Muir Woods and the Point Reyes National Seashore. The area was expanded and unified under the National Park Service in the mid-1990’s when San Francisco’s Presidio Army Base was closed.

.
The Marin Headlands is the portion of the GGNRA that surrounds Sausalito and connects our small town to the Golden Gate Bridge and to the coast of the Pacific Ocean in West Marin.
