RAGS TO RICHES
One day if I go to heaven… I’ll look around and say “It ain’t bad, but it ain’t San Francisco." (Herb Caen)
THE CITY'S BEST MANSIONS
This hike takes diversity to a whole new level - from sprawling lawns and palatial homes, to restored barracks and gritty street life, this hike has something for everyone! You'll enjoy stairways, bay views, enviable mansions, crazy artwork, and the boulevard that divides two very distinct parts of SF.

The oldest (former) military base on the west coast (1776), SF’s most expensive and massive homes (Billionaire Row), four incredible natural works by artist Andy Goldsworthy, a gutter made of Victorian headstones, SF’s first park (not Golden Gate), a San Franciscan’s favorite workout location (288 steps), Ground Zero for Hippies…and as always, much much more.
