Presidio and lots more (San Francisco)

By popular demand: Let's hike in the Presidio!

 See the following link for the route of the hike in the Presidio:


http://www.mapmyhike.com/us/san-francisco-ca/presidio-hike-2-route-218215649

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).

See the following like for the map of the hike:

Please feel free to print yourself a copy!

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.


After hike event:

 We are considering a hot pot restaurant afterwards. Hot Pot Garden in the Sunset/Taraval district is a good one.

    Thanks Tom and Lincoln for an amazing hike. Lincoln you were spot on. We were in SF but it didn't feel like it. Kristy, thanks for finding a restaurant so quickly that would take 20 people and on a Saturday. Really great day all the way around.

    This hike is on! There is a slight chance of rain (10-20%). Be prepared. It will be slightly windy (7-15 mph). A windbreaker for the top layer would be great - ideally a breathable version. Hand gloves, a scarf and/or a head cap would go a long way with keeping one warm. I am looking forward to this meet up hike and your participation. Please be on time (arriving before 9:30AM), as to leave at 9:30AM. We want to avoid forecasted rains in the late afternoon. Depending on the group size, I anticipate returning between 3PM and 4PM. Text me at[masked] if you are running late.
