This year’s Peak2Peak route rocks – and you can still do it (plus check out the photos)!
This year’s route doesn’t disappoint
Last Saturday, after a three-year hiatus, Walk SF held its beloved Peak2Peak walk in-person. First-timers and veterans, couples and colleagues, hiking buddies and families alike gathered for a fully supported group walk. And as shown by the fist bumps, hugs, nods, handshakes, and smiles at the starting gate, we were all “so excited ’cause we’re reunited” to quote the 1978 hit classic by Peaches and Herb.
This event is billed as the “ultimate urban walking adventure with surprises for even the most experienced hikers.” This year’s route certainly lived up to it.
We passed by spots on any Top Ten List of Things to See in San Francisco – from the jaw-dropping mansions along Billionaire’s Row to the Instagram darling 16th Avenue Tiled Steps and over to the historic Conservatory of Flowers. We saw the patched stairs in Alta Vista Park that were banged up during the filming of the 1972 movie “What’s Up, Doc?” and the newly renamed stairway for Vicha Ratanapakdee, the 84-year-old Thai grandfather who died from an unprovoked attack on January 28, 2021 that helped spur the Stop Asian Hate movement.
The route also brought to life many of the pedestrian safety issues that Walk SF works on, whether it was crossing dangerous streets, like Fulton, or strolling on the JFK Promenade we’re working to protect on the November 8 ballot (YES on J, NO on I). Learn more and get involved!
It’s not too late to do Peak2Peak – self-guided routes are available until December 31
If a memorable day (or two) of hiking sounds good to you, get your self-guided Peak2Peak tickets now. This is a really fun way to support Walk SF’s work for safe streets, and includes a Walk SF membership.
Also, the Peak2Peak route is designed so you can do it either as one 12-mile hike, or two 6-mile hikes. Don’t forget to share photos for a chance to win prizes. Use #peak2peaksf and @walksf.
