Parking for the Marin hike

We're planning to hike from Rodeo Beach to Stinson in November but can't find any information on where we could leave the car. Any ideas? Happy to leave at either end but seems no overnight parking available. The Visitor center now closed at the Headlands so at a loss as to where to find the information. Thanks for any ideas.

  • Marnie, many people park overnight in the Headlands.  Many backpackers and inn-to-inn hikers park in the lot near the Headlands Institute where staff and overnight visitors park. 

    • Thank you. I'd read the hostel was closed so guessed there would only be day visitors.
