Where

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 popular with locals because the city is so hilly, there are so many vistas, and each neighborhood is so different and unique. For example, walking through the Presidio will give you sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge, while walking through The Mission will give you a glimpse at the diverse Mexican-American community in San Francisco (and the best neighborhood for food in the country, according to Thrillist).

While you can easily plan your own hike, it may be best to book one with Urban Hiker San Francisco, the only urban hiking tour company in San Francisco. San Francisco neighborhoods, while generally safe, can have pockets where it may not be as safe to walk through, especially for those with children. Walking with a tour company ensures you stay out of these areas and have a fun and safe urban hike.

Racertrips Tips

  • The hikes average 5 miles each, so make sure your group is able to complete this distance. It may not be the best outing for the morning before or after the race. In addition, most of the hikes will include hills and/or stairs. (Welcome to San Francisco!)
  • Each hike is $49 per person and requires at least two people on each tour. Each hike starts in a different location, and each hiker is responsible for their own water. The hikes are geared for those 13 and up, so it’s not suited for those with younger children.

      Hike Within the Borders of the City

      5/ 5

      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.
