For those of you who love stairs and hills (me!) let's do a hike in this great neighborhood. We'll start at Piedmont Park by the fountain. From there we will head over to the Blair Street stairs all the way up to Scenic Ave. We will check out the view from up there then wander down and around the streets around Park Way. Eventually making our way over to Sea View down into Trestle Glenn then back up through Piedmont Park. You’ll get a chance to see lots of big houses and amazing views. Lots of hills and hidden stairs to get a great workout in. Total hike about 7-8 miles. We will do this hike in light rain but not heavy. Please be able to keep up with the group as we will move at a fairly quick pace with many turns and hidden paths if you fall behind you’ll likely lose us.
Let’s do a fast hike through the city. We’ll meet on the corner of California and Davis. (S.E. corner) only a block away from the BART station. this will be a fast hike so that means no stopping and waiting for people to catch up, we’re going to hustle! The point of this is to get a nice workout in. We’ll walk through the Embarcadero center over to Levi’s Plaza up the Filbert Street steps and down and up to Russian hill where will do a series of hills and stairs. eventually heading back down Vallejo Street all the way back to our starting point. We’ll do about 6 1/2 miles so shooting for a little over 3 miles an hour. we could go faster if we don’t have to wait for a lot of traffic lights. Since this is a quick one, no bathroom break, so please be sure to go before you start. we’ll be finishing near the Hyatt and there are restrooms in there to use before and after but don’t cut it too close in the beginning, we’ll be leaving promptly at 6:15 so we don’t walk too much in the dark. Bring plenty of water as hopefully this hike will make you sweat!
