Overview
Though Northern California offers numerous hiking destinations, travelers may not realize that you don't even need to leave San Francisco to enjoy outdoor adventure. With this off-the-beaten path San Francisco tour, you can hike through the city's urban landscape. Highlights include climbing two of San Francisco's hills, taking in the view from Twin Peaks, and even cruising down the Seward Street Slides.

Great views, but not for the faint of heart. My fitness tracker indicated we walked over 5 miles and climbed 69 stories. All worth it to see out of the way places and interesting sights. Our guide had great stories and old photos. Who knew you could walk through a eucalyptus
