Steepest Streets and Staircases of San Francisco | 6 mile walk

Join me, on my birthday--(can't think of a better gift to myself :)-- for an urban hike through some of the hilliest streets of San Francisco.  The walk will be a major cardio workout and will include some long staircases.  We will visit the neighborhoods of Telegraph Hill, Russian Hill, Cow Hollow and the mansions of Pacific Heights.  Now that it's springtime, flowers are in bloom and perfume is in the air.

Some of the famous steep streets and stairs will be Filbert St. Steps, Telegraph Hill, Greenwich Street, Broderick Street, Lyon Street Steps and of course Lombard Street!  

We will go down a couple of new lanes and pass new mansions for this version, and end up for refreshments at Liverpool Lil's for those interested, before taking the free PresidiGo shuttle back.

Meet: 11:00 AM  Depart: 11:15 sharp.  Unfortunately, I will not be able to check for texts once we depart.  If you text me, please include your name.

Lunch Stop: Jonas on Hyde 

Restroom Stops: Starbucks or Ferry Building before the walk and Jonas on Hyde.

At the end of the hike, we will either take a free Shuttle back downtown or a public bus, 2.00.  I don't know what time we will finish (depends on the group's pace and rest stops.)

Bring: Water, snacks, layers and cash in small bills for the activity fee and refreshments so they don't have to split the bill.

Doggie Policy: Unfortunately pups will not be able to attend this walk.

Activity Fee: 2.00 

One Way Bus Fare: 2.00 (just in case)

    Sorry to cancel short notice. I spent yesterday walking around the city and biked over the bridge, and that's enough foot powered exploring for me! Enjoy the day and happy birthday :)

    Huzzahs on the Blessed Day, Stairmaster Franny!!! I wish you a splendid day. It will be that much improved because you won't have me to kick around; I'm going to have to opt out because I think it would be pressing it to work into my other plans for the day. I hope to join you in your next romp.

    When does the birthday coffee start? 10am? Can't wait!

      Thanks, Laura. lol. The coffee is just casual, come anytime. I'll probably get there around 10:30-10:45 actually. After the hike there is a little neighborhood pub near the shuttle if we feel like a light afternoon beverage.

    any idea just roughly when it might finish?

    May 16, 2014

    • Franny

      Hi Ebet, it's always hard to guess. It depends on the group's pace and lunch stop. Last time I think we finished between 3 and 4. You can bail anytime you want. Just get the MUNI app so you can locate a bus. I do not know the bus system.

    Happy Birthday, Franny! Sorry Kyra & I can't join you this time. She has Prom the night before & says won't be up to it.

      Thanks, totally understandable. Tell Kyra to have fun! Hope to see you next time~
