Details

This trail is an easy urban hike on flat terrain from Ferry Building to Fort Point at Golden Gate Bridge and back. This is a 4+ hours brisk walk and 10 - 12 miles total roundtrip.

"Start the walk from Ferry Building. If you start on a Saturday, you will be able to pick up your lunch from the Farmer’s market. When you are done exploring Ferry Plaza, start walking westwards and stay as close to the bay as possible. Many of these piers offer pedestrian walkways. The route is unmistakable, so there is little to no chance of getting lost. Here is what you will see on this hike – San Francisco skyline from several vista points, sailboats dotting the sea, yachts moored at the harbors, large container ships crossing underneath the Golden Gate bridge, kites doing acrobatic maneuvers by the marina, kids playing in big or small groups, people of all ages sunbathing or jogging, couples of all genders holding hands or kissing, buildings with military architecture – extensions of Presidio."

    I've postponed this hike to Oct 25 to avoid conflict with the Nike Women's Marathon on Oct 18.

    It's the first time we have organized this route as a group hike, so there's too many variables to set a time/place in advance for lunch. Please join us for the next hike if you can't make it at the start time/location.
