  • First time came to the observation deck, I think it is best spot to view the golden bridge, even was cloudy day we still able to get quiet a few very good shots of bridge, I can’t imagine how great views would be in sunny days. It’s very easy-accessible, you can drive and bike to there with short walk to the top, very windy at the top, bright a jacket and watch your hat is great idea. At almost 500 feet above the bay, this high cliff-top vantage point was a prime location for big coastal defense guns when the army was there.
  • If you wanna take a picture (or more!) with one of the best angles of the Golden Gate Bridge then this is the place for you! I certainly feel like this is best spot to do it as the entire span of the bridge is visible. It can be easily accessible with a car as there are parking areas all around or if you don’t have a car, you can walk from the H. Dana Bowers Rest area/Vista Point on the other side, go underneath the bridge through the little walkway and hike it up to this viewpoint. Believe me, the view’s priceless!
