Urban Hike--Yerba Buena Island & Treasure Island -Bus(Roundtrip­­­) & Asian Food

Join us for a great urban hike through Yerba Buena Island, a natural island in the middle of the SF Bay & Treasure Island. Take in one of the most beautiful, scenic views in the world of the San Francisco Bay & skyline under the new & old span of the Bay Bridge while we explore & discover the natural habitat of the island. 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 at Starbucks for coffee, introductions & a meet & greet. Then, at around 3:15 pm, we will catch the Shuttle Bus to Treasure Island (8 mins). First, we'll hike up Yerba Buena Island & climb to the top of the island for some amazing and historical views. See the new and old eastern spans of the Bay Bridge side by side, the western span of the bridge and visit the old plane Signal Tower turned Officer's Club, now deteriorating, condemned and eerie. We will then go down a "secret path and staircase" to the Clipper Cove Beach and return by another staircase to Treasure Island. From there, we'll stroll down Avenue of the Palms and visit Bliss Dance, a titan of a woman steel structure built for the 2010 Burning Man event. We'll be hiking/walking some uphill stairs and paths on Yerba Buena Island then flat on Treasure Island, so you'll get a pretty good workout. But, we will have rest stops & picture postcard photo opportunities during the hike/walk. Afterward, we'll be heading back to San Francisco for some tasty Asian food & drinks around 6:30pm.

-- This is an advanced beginners to intermediate walk. We will be going at a moderate pace. --

AFTER URBAN HIKE: If 3 or more members are interested in going for dinner, then we will go to a local place in S.F. Downtown.
