After a while, you pop out onto the ridge and here the views become really amazing.
|Gust of fog obscures San Francisco view|
The marine layer (i.e., fog) burned off at around 11, but big puffy gusts of fog blew by every now and then over the bay between Angel Island and SF. It was really neat.
|Hiking on the Sunset trail on Angel Island|
|Angel Island hike on North Ridge and Sunset Trails|
Distance: ~5.8 miles
Elevation: Mt Livermore is ~788 feet
Notes: Angel Island has a ton of visitors, but most appear to stay near Ayala Cove and the visitor facilities (museum, ruins) or on the fireroad. The trails certainly had plenty of hikers, but more like a Marin Headlands level of use rather than the crowds that I had expected. In particular, the Sunset trail was pretty low traffic.
