Now open for RSVPs. The only cost is $3 cash per adult. This walk is like our "Mount Olympus + 4 More Walk" in that it goes to a scenic part of SF that not many people ever visit. Again we boldly go where no tourist has ever gone.
We will gather at 1 PM in front of Muddy's Coffee House near the corner of Valencia & 24th Street which is close to SF's 24th Street BART Station in the Mission District. There is one tiny restroom inside of Muddy's Coffee House and also the Mission District Branch Library which is half way between the 24th Street BART Station and Muddy's.
Attendees should eat their lunch before this walk as we will not stop for lunch.
At 1:10 PM we will walk from Muddy's to St. Lukes Hospital, at the corner of Valencia & Cesar Chavez Street, as our big restroom stop. Then we will walk around Bernal Heights in a clockwise direction. Then we walk up to the top of Bernal Hill. Then we walk quickly down to the Bernal Heights Branch Library. Then we walk back half way up Bernal Hill. Then we walk down garden stairways including one equipped with a giant slide.
We then continue through garden stairways and mini parks to the Holly Park. Then we walk South/West to the Glen Park Library which will be our endpoint which is less than one block from the BART station. Estimated ending time: 5:00 PM.
