This place is out of a postcard, there's a small forest, there's a beach, there's a view of the Golden Gate bridge and the neighboring mountains. Philz Coffee even has a van parked there.

We returned to Crissy Field for another wonderful end of January walk. The sun was out. The views of San Francisco and of the Golden Gate Bridge stunning. There are picnic tables. Its a delightful area to return to and visit.

Lots of parking (paid) and tons of trails to walk, hike or bike. People watching, photo taking. Easy access to the Golden Gate and shoreline. Perfect place to see Alcatraz and other famous landmarks from a different perspective

I went to Crissy Field and the view of the bridge from there was beautiful. Would definitely recommend going to Crissy Field. Free parking, amazing views, and just a beautiful place to walk around in.

It's always crowded. However, it's just a beautiful place to take a long walk or run (if that's your thing) with the rest of San Francisco. Need coffee or food? Stop by the Warming Hut.
