Walk San Francisco’s seventh annual Peak2Peak Walk this Sunday promises to be an exciting adventure through the spine of the city.  The walk starts at West Portal, where participants will embark on a 12-mile, 15-peak journey from Mount Davidson to Coit Tower:

You’ll cross the city over wide sidewalks, dirt trails, hidden stairways, and take in glorious views from 15 different peaks! From climbing the slopes of Mount Olympus in the morning to enjoying the view from Coit Tower in the afternoon, this full-day walk will offer you a whole new way to see San Francisco.

The walk is fully guided, and you’ll get directions at the event when you sign in. You’ll also be treated to a delicious picnic lunch midway through.

Explore the city, and support pedestrian advocacy by taking part in Walk SF’s annual fundraising walk. The cost is $75 (well worth it) and the registration deadline is this Thursday, so click here and sign up now!

    I love the idea, but $75 is too steep for me. Is there a map to follow on your own?

  • icarus12

    I doubt it.  This is fundraising drive.  If it gave the route out, replete with hidden staircases, the organization would lose event attendance and money.  As much as the group supports walking the City, it isn’t doing this event to increase walking.  It’s doing this to raise money for itself (which, I guess, in a roundabout way will increase overall walking).

    baklazhan – icarus12 is correct, the route is only given to registrants.  However, Walk SF does shorter (2-hour or so) monthly walks that are $10, and free for members.  They are usually posted in the StreetsBlog calendar, as well as on the Walk SF web page (walksf.org), and announced in the Walk SF newsletter.
