Enjoy the Beautiful Marin Headlands!
Please be aware that the Project Headlands road work is underway in the Marin Headlands daily, now through October, 2013, except on weekends. Please use Conzelman road (not the tunnel) to get in and out of the Headlands.
At The Marine Mammal Center, you can expect to see work on our new driveway and future parking area upon your visit. If you wish, you may also park at the Rodeo Beach parking lot and take a short, invigorating stroll up to our hospital. Click here for more information about Project Headlands construction.

From North of the Golden Gate Bridge: Take the last Sausalito exit off Highway 101, just before the Golden Gate Bridge. At the exit stop sign, turn left and follow Conzelman road up along the hill overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge. The road will wind up the hill until you get to roundabout. Bear to your left and head down the hill into the Marin Headlands. At the bottom of the hill, hang left on Bunker Road. Follow directions below.
From South of the Golden Gate Bridge: Just after you cross the Golden Gate Bridge, take the second exit off Highway 101 at Alexander Avenue (after the Vista Point). At the exit stop sign, turn left and follow the road under the freeway. Right before the road merges again with Highway 101, turn right on Conzelman road taking you up along the hill overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge. The road will wind up the hill until you get to roundabout. Bear to your left and head down the hill into the Marin Headlands. At the bottom of the hill, hang left on Bunker Road. Follow directions below.
Directions once on Bunker Road:
- Follow Bunker Road for approximately 2 miles.
- Ignore various forks to the left; always bear to the right to make sure you stay on Bunker Road. Rodeo lagoon is your next landmark.
- About halfway alongside the lagoon, the road forks. Turn right at that fork, continuing uphill. Turn right at your next opportunity, this will lead you up the hill and through our entrance.
PLEASE NOTE: On Saturdays and Sundays, there is public transportation to the Marin Headlands using the MUNI 76X Marin Headlands Express. For the schedule and more details, please see 76X Marin Headlands Express. Unfortunately, there is no daily public transportation to our facility on weekdays.
Delays and Road Closure Advisory
For the next three years there will be delays and road closures in the Marin Headlands as the Park improves access and services for cars, bikers and pedestrians. Due to these improvements, taking the highlighted route (see reverse) will likely be the best option to reach us. However, periodic delays are possible. If you have scheduled a tour, program or meeting at The Marine Mammal Center, please allow extra time so that you can arrive on time. Before your visit we suggest that you check http://www.projectheadlands.gov/ to get the most up-to-date information on delays and closures.
