Hike Description:

We will meet outside in front of Gott’s Restaurant at the Ferry Building.

We will then proceed along the Embarcadero to the Filbert Steps, the stairs are impressive for their length, their wonderful views of San Francisco, the well tended gardens on either side, and the beautiful art deco buildings along the way. One of the most spectacular buildings features three-story high reliefs of San Francisco.

Nearby are the equally amazing Greenwich Street Stairs too! Afterwards, we will check out the murals at Coit Tower.

From there we will walk to Russian Hill a quaint, upscale residential community known for the famously crooked Lombard Street, a major tourist destination. The iconic San Francisco cable cars crest the neighborhood’s hills, which provide views of a number of city landmarks including the Golden Gate and Bay bridges.

From there we will stroll across the city taking in the breathtaking views along Broadway. This is a fabulous amount of up. It is also a lot of city streets walking. We will end up at the Fillmore Jazz Festival. They have beer gardens there. Oh and Jazz. Kim Nalley is there from 4-6pm.

This is an A to B so we will NOT go back to Embarcadero.
