The Barbary Coast Trail is a walking tour connecting 20 historic sites and local history museums. Approximately 180 bronze medallions and arrows embedded in the sidewalk mark the 3.8-mile trail.
Our first stop will be The Old Mint on a path that will take us through Hallidie Plaza, Union Square, Chinatown, North Beach, Telegraph Hill (last day Coit Tower is open prior to renovation), Fisherman's Wharf, Aquatic Park, Ghirardelli Square, and optionally, Nob Hill via cable car as we return to the starting point. We will stop for lunch in Chinatown and get refreshments along the way. We should finish up by 5:00 depending on the group's pace.
