SF’s new 17-mile trail offers look at rarely seen areas

The San Francisco Chronicle reports

San Francisco is a great walker’s town, and Sunday is a great day for walking. It is also the opening of the new San Francisco Crosstown Trail, which runs 17 miles from one end of the city to another.

The Crosstown Trail runs from the Candlestick Point State Recreation Area near the old ballpark site diagonally across the city to Lands End on the edge of the Pacific Ocean.

It’s part woodsy trail, part city streets, part park. It runs over hills and dales, through a mysterious forest, a swale or two, past Stow Lake and little-known Lobos Creek. It goes through Little Hollywood, Golden Gate Park and the Presidio, the Philosopher’s Way trail in McLaren Park, through parts of the city that even the most intrepid urban explorer has never seen. It’s open to everyone, even bike riders.
