  • One Way


A spectacular way to see some of the best spots in San Francisco, both the natural world and the built environment. Do this one-way urban shoreline adventure on foot or bike:

  • Start at the Ferry Building in downtown S.F. Walk along the Embarcadero through Fisherman’s Wharf, up over the hill at Fort Mason. Feel free to take a side trip out to one of the piers to get a closer look at the bay.
  • Next up is the Marina and onto Crissy Field. Wonderful views of the Golden Gate Bridge passing by the new climbing gym.
  • Stop by the warming hut for a hot chocolate, water, snacks before heading up to the bridge and onto Lands End via the Coastal Trail.
