Let's hike in the Presidio!
We'll start from the parking lot at the Crissy Field visitor's center.
The hike/walk will be about 11 miles and will take around 5+ hours to complete. This is not a beginner hike. I would rate this as an intermediate level hike. There is a good amount of climbing involved.
Our route will go through or near the Letterman District, Lyon Street steps right past Diane Feinstein's home, Lover's Lane, Inspiration Point Overlook, a portion of the Bay Area Ridge Trail, El Polin Springs, the San Francisco National Cemetery Overlook, Rob Hill Campground, Baker Beach, Battery to Bluffs Trail, etc.
We will get to view or go past 6 different San Francisco neighborhoods: The Marina, Pacific Heights, Presidio Heights, Inner and Outer Richmond, and Seacliff.
There are several differing environments that we will walk though: Redwood, Eucalyptus, and Cyprus Groves, a dune habitat, a riparian habitat, bluffs at the ocean, and a tidal marsh. We will walk on some sidewalks (concrete and asphalt) and trail (soil, gravel, and sand).

Parking at Chrissy Field is free.
Be sure to bring water, lunch, and appropriate clothing for San Francisco weather.
Rain will cancel this walk/hike.
There is a 5 cent fun fee for this excursion. Not payable to me. Take the coin and toss it into Yoda's fountain at the Lucasfilms HQ!
