San Francisco - Embarcadero to Ocean Beach

Enjoy coastal views while exploring what San Francisco offers the urban hiker on this 10 - 12 mile route with rolling hills.  Not for speed demons or gazelles.  Pace will be moderate, but not a beginner's hike.  This will be a full day out, so don't plan on getting back before 6 PM.  Return via bus or streetcar.

Bring: Snack or lunch, weather-appropriate clothing, $ for return by bus or streetcar.

Meet: 10:00 am Justin Herman Plaza (Embarcadero Center), by the Hyatt Regency stairway.

Directions: Take BART or Muni to the Embarcadero Station. Parking meters will be enforced in SF on Sundays, so park in a paid lot if you drive!  (The Golden Gateway Garage, at 250 Clay St, has a $7 flat rate on Sundays.)

Waiting List:  If the hike fills, you can ask to be notified of an opening by clicking on the "Notify Me" button on the right-hand side of this page.

Questions? Contact Leader: Bob Solotar, (510)[masked], or [masked] (preferred).

    Good day, with a good group of people. Interesting weather, warm & sunny for the first half of the day east of the Golden Gate, and thick fog west of the Golden Gate. 30 attendees, with 16 coming from Meetup and the rest from seeing the hike listed on the Chapter's activities calendar.

    This was a scenic and pretty long but easy hike. The pace was slow with lots of stops for toilets and rest. Bob does a nice job of discussing various points of interest.

    Bob, can you say the closest intersection where the hike ends at Ocean Beach? I want to look up Muni options to get back towards parking near the Embarcadero Center. Thanks!

      You can take the Geary or Fulton St bus, or the N Judah streetcar, depending on how far you want to go. I plan to catch the N Judah.

    Guess I have to check my email more often as others are taking the "open" spots before I can respond. I'll keep trying.

    Tomaj, I could use a ride in, or I can catch the BART. I live near San Pablo and University in Berkeley. Where are you approximately?

    If two spots are still open, Adele and I will take them. If only one, please notify one or the other of us when an additional one becomes available. We'll be together, so it's two spots or none.

      Not sure if the system works that way. It's an automatic system set up by Meetup. You'll just have to monitor openings.
