This trail goes along the water from Fishermen's wharf to the Golden Gate Bridge. It's an easy wide path, sometimes shared with bikes. Portions of the trail are being upgraded in 2017. There are short detours in the meantime.

I walked along this trail from Fisherman's Wharf to wind down at the end of a very frenzied business trip to San Francisco. There are great views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. Plenty of room for walkers, joggers and cyclists. I was lucky...More
