“4 mile Scenic Walking Trail in San Francisco”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

My walking buddy and I were in the mood to check out a different trail in the city and came across the Bay Trail. It encompasses Fort Point, Crissy Field promenade and Marina Green areas which was quite scenic. On a clear day, you can see the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. It was quite a nice walk (over 4 miles) and we were even treated to a beautiful sight of sail boats practicing for the Americas Cup. ...just another reason to appreciate living in San Francisco.

“Absolutely the best thing we did in SanFrancisco”
Reviewed August 29, 2007

Firstly, I should mention that I haven't seen the entire trail

We hired a bikes for a day and rode part of it. We are slightly to moderately fit. It was an easy day ride from SF city across the bridge to Sausalito and on to Tuburon with a ferry back to SF.

Cost about $90 each for bike hire and ferry ticket. Lots of little shops along the way in Sausalito and Tiburon to buy snacks or stop for a meal/drink.

SF weather is The BEST for bike riding, even in mid-summer. We will do it again in mid-winter because we loved it so much.

Great views back to the bridge and city.
