Best of San Francisco Outdoors



Description:

San Francisco is the perfect destination for outdoor enthusiasts. Not only does the city boast a treasure trove of green spaces, beaches, and outdoor activities, but it also serves as a launching point for amazing nature attractions in its environs, many of which are under an hour away by car. In the city, explore the wonders of Golden Gate Park, take in unparalleled views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Marin from Baker Beach, or surf killer waves at Ocean Beach. Links lovers can enjoy the adjacent Harding and Fleming golf courses. Head north of the city to Marin for hiking trails galore at Mt. Tamalpais State Park; the Dipsea Trail is a challenging yet popular route, extending from Muir Woods National Monument to Stinson Beach. Further north, Pt. Reyes State Park offers seaside hikes, an abundance of wildlife, and serene camping spots.
