The beginning is the crossing of the Golden Gate Bridge, in itself a major part of the city. Marin Headlands await you on the other side and once you arrive there, you will enjoy a great walk along the dramatic seaside cliffs of the coastal trail and Hawk Hill. This beautiful setting delivers nature immediately by way of the birds and wildlife that make this home. Moving on to Muir Woods, your fantasy of this forest will come true as you walk among the towering redwoods as easy packed trails meander between them. Your guide is not permitted to escort you through the Muir Woods. On your own enjoy this beautiful collection of indigenous growth. Your exploration of the forest is followed by the Muir Beach, which will be the location for your picnic lunch. You are gazing now at the Gulf of Farallones with its distinctive blue water, most likely something you did not expect on this adventure.
The quiet of the morning will somewhat continue as you head back into the city, but to see the incredible park system that spreads over the hills and valleys of the San Francisco typography. The parks you visit will depend on the season and the weather, but most likely you will see the forests of the Lands End Sutro District or the gorgeous Presidio, where the grasslands blow gently with the winds off the water.
This intimate look at nature in and around San Francisco will help you appreciate one of our most iconic US cities.
