Distance: ~ 3.5 miles
Trail(s): Crocker Park Recreational Trail (+)
Where’s it at? Brisbane. South of San Francisco on 101


I’ve hiked this trail hundreds of times and I watched it being built. This is the nearest trail to where I live and I consider it my personal gym. There is very little use of the trail. I definitely wouldn’t call this a destination trail, San Bruno Mountain is much more exciting and just a mile away. However, it’s free and if you’re hanging out in Brisbane it’s a nice little jogging or walking trail.

The Crocker Park Recreational Trail is a 2.5 mile loop at the foot of San Bruno Mountain in the city of Brisbane. At least a good portion of it used to be a railroad line – I watched them pulling out the railroad ties and tracks a few years back when I worked in Brisbane.

You can easily hike into downtown Brisbane for lunch or get some elevation change by walking up North Hill and around there. That’s what I do to turn it into a quick but decent training hike to keep my legs in a little bit of shape without any cost or much time spent.

The big downside to the trail is that it really just winds a loop around a bunch of companies, including a few logistics / freight forwarding businesses. Don’t expect silence or wilderness on this trail.
