Join us for a fun a fun urban hike Wednesday evening. Together, we will explore different walking paths, steps & hidden paths this beautiful city has to offer & experience it in a fun way. It's a great way to enjoy the city & see some of the city's best points of interest: The Embarcadero, Coit Tower, Lombard Street, Aquatic Park Beach & Fort Mason. Have a great time socializing while meeting new friends & enjoy lots of fun & laughter. Members in the group are always nice & friendly. We always have a lot of fun whenever we all get together with a couple of other meetup groups also invited. So join in on the fun! We look forward to seeing you there!

We will meet for coffee in the San Francisco Ferry Building for a meet & greet. Please arrive by no later than 6:10 pm for announcements & brief intros. At 6:15pm, we will begin our walk down the Embarcadero by the bay front towards Levi Strauss Plaza & check out their charming fountains. Then, we will take the wooden stairs of Filbert Street & explore this fascinating neighborhood as we climb up to Coit Tower to stop for a break & catch the amazing view of the San Francisco Bay. From there, we descend then we walk up the crookedest street in the city, Lombard Street, to view some of the beautiful plants & flowers along the famous street. Thereafter, we will retreat to the beauty & tranquility of Aquatic Park & Beach surrounded by some of the most picturesque & breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay as we head up the path towards Fort Mason Great Meadows Park via some hidden steps & a secret path. There, we capture more beautiful views of the S.F. Bay. Then we end at mysterious Fort Mason & walk down to the pier for an amazing view of the bay & the sunset. It's quite a distance & a few hills, so you will get a pretty good workout. We end the walk at around  8 pm where we will grab a couple of drinks or food if enough people are interested.
