Hike Within the Borders of the City
While the mountains of California are just a short car ride from downtown San Francisco it’s actually very popular to hike right within the 7×7 borders of the city. Urban hikes are crazy popular with locals because the city is so hilly, there are so many vistas and such beauty all around without ever leaving town. You can easily plan your own hike but also pick up a guided one with Urban Hiker San Francisco. You can’t go wrong hiking to the top of Twin Peaks or Nob Hill with so many interesting sights along the way.
I ran my first 5k 10 years ago and immediately became hooked on racing. My favorite distance is the half marathon and I run them in Portland, San Francisco, San Jose, and Oakland. I ran the California International Marathon as my first and only full marathon distance but will undoubtedly run one again. In addition to running, I love road biking and have ridden my bike four times from San Francisco to Los Angeles as part of the AIDS Lifecycle. When I’m not running or biking I’m certainly outside in some way, shape or form, most likely hiking wherever I can.
