Golden Gate Bridge: Hike, bike and enjoy breathtaking views

Experience the cool morning fog lift off San Francisco Bay from its sidewalk. Or watch the sun set behind its golden, 746-foot arches from Fort Point. A marvel of human engineering, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco is an iconic symbol of both the city and America. Take a free tour to learn about its history while enjoying panoramic views from the bridge's sidewalks. After walking or biking the bridge, explore the bridle paths and trails of Golden Gate National Park, found on either end of the bridge, to experience the lakes, flower, green lawns and natural splendor of the Bay Area.

  • Are permits required to take photos of the bridge?

    It depends. Permits are definitely not required to snap a few shots of your visit to Golden Gate Bridge to share with friends and family. However, permits and associated fees are required for photographing the bridge for commercial purposes, such as a magazine article or creating stock images. Commercial photographers also need to give a 30-day notice to bridge authorities and sign a location agreement. 
  • What regulations are in place for bicycles?

    Bicyclists enjoy toll-free access to the bridge's sidewalks 24 hours a day. However, due to the limited space to maneuver on the sidewalks, bicyclists must yield to pedestrians and always use caution during peak hours. Electric bicycles may also be used on the bridge's sidewalks. However, electric bikes must be turned off and pedaled manually while crossing the bridge.
