Details

Have you ever wanted to hike to most all of the highest points in San Francisco? Well here's your chance!

We will hike to Mt Davidson, Twin Peaks, Mt Sutro, Tank Hill, Mt Olympus, Corona Heights, Buena Vista park, Lone Mountain, Grand View park, Golden Gate Heights park, and Edge Hill.

Some other points of interest will be Sutro Tower, Alamo Square, the observation tower at the De Young in Golden Gate park. Also there will be some very interesting staircases along the way. This walk will go through many San Francisco neighborhoods that the typical tourist does not visit.

Lunch will be in the Haight. A suggestion is Cha Cha Cha a Carribbean tapas restaurant but we will take a vote when we get there. If you wish, you may choose to pack a lunch.
