Urban Landscapes and Nature Getaways
You might not think of San Francisco as a must-visit hiking destination, but the city’s dozens of hills and year-round warm climate make it a perfect vacation destination for the hiker that enjoys the combination of urban landscapes and nature getaways.
San Francisco’s hiking experiences can take you into towering redwood forests, to the edge of cliffs, and along the beach — and that’s just the beginning. There are hiking trails for people of all abilities in San Francisco.
Spectacular Vistas in San Francisco and Beyond
Whether you want to stretch your legs on a short hike in the city or venture outside of San Francisco for a longer expedition, California’s varied landscapes have you covered. Twin Peaks is a relatively easy half-mile uphill walk that gives you panoramic views of the city. Another great option is the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, with stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge and many trails to choose from. There are even paved walking trails if you prefer hikes of that nature.
If you’re looking for more of a challenge within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, reserve a hiking tour through Muir Woods. Here, you’ll experience the impressive old-growth California redwoods, ranging from 400 to 800 years old. These trees can grow up to 250 feet tall! Hike along a stream in the canyon and enjoy the superb views of the valley below. While you can certainly explore Muir Woods on your own, consider reserving a San Francisco hiking tour to get some local insight on the area.
