We mapped every trail and bike path in the city's parks and natural areas, so you can pick your own route from park to park, or neighborhood to neighborhood. Climb a nearby hilltop to enjoy the view (and go down the other side). Plus you can follow several regional trails through the City and across the Golden Gate, including the California Coastal Trail, Bay Area Ridge Trail, and San Francisco Bay Trail.
At the margins of the map, Angel Island, the Marin Headlands, and San Bruno Mountain are three big natural areas from which you can see the City from a new perspective, get out into nature, and discover the original landscape of coastal scrub and flowery grasslands.
This is also a complete street map of the City, from the heart of downtown to the outermost neighborhoods, with shopping streets, museums, community gardens, farmers's markets, and historic districts. MUNI routes, BART stations, and ferry lines give you options to explore the City car-free or plan one-way walks with confidence. (Most tourist maps only show half the City).
The double-sided format overlaps at Golden Gate Park, plus close-ups of Downtown (from Civic Center to AT&T Park and Fishermans Wharf), Golden Gate Park, Buena Vista Park, and Fort Point.
The July 2019 4th edition includes the new Crosstown Trail, a detail map of Mt. Sutro, many more little street names, and expanded descriptions of the major parks on each side.
The north map shows from Golden Gate Park north to Sausalito and Angel Island. Detail of Presidio trails.
The south map extends from the Mission District to San Bruno Mountain. Detail of Telegraph Hill.
The text includes a list of guidebooks, plus websites on local history and natural history, and a complete list of park agencies and dog-walking information.
Bicyclists may also find this map a useful reference. In 2019 we added bike routes on streets, in light purple. Thicker purple edge indicates bike lanes. The routes are no longer numbered (we lived for many years on route 20) but there are really nice wayfinding signs. As always we show bike paths and trails in bold purple, including the ever-popular (and over-popular) route across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito, bike paths in Golden Gate Park and the Presidio, and challenging single-track trails on Mt. Sutro and Laguna Honda Hospital grounds.
