Billy Goat Hill Trail
Billy Goat Trails
Billy Goat Hill has a small trail network consisting of 0.2 miles. The trail is made up of steep switchbacks up the hillside to a view point. The trail climbs a short distance further before flattening out near Beacon Street. Walter Haas Park is adjacent to Billy Goat Hill across Beacon Street.
Some trails at Billy Goat Hill were steep and dangerous, especially during the rainy season. One trail segment on the north side was adjacent to a steep cliff face.To improve safety and access, the Urban Trails Program recently realigned these trails, and built several stairs and a short retaining wall. Trailside vegetation was restored to stabilize soils and improve aesthetics and habitat value.
The park can be accessed from 30th street or Beacon Street. Street parking is widely available around the park. Muni line 52 stops on the other side of Walter Haas Park.
