49 Mile Scenic Walk #4: Ocean Beach to Lake Merced

May 18, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join us in walking the city’s historic 49 Mile Scenic Drive in chunks over the course of nine months. This new event is inspired by and made possible thanks to Kristine Poggioli and Carolyn Eidson, authors of Walking San Francisco’s 49 Mile Scenic Drive.

May’s section will begin at the edge of Golden Gate Park and meander along most of the city’s beautiful Pacific coastline – taking in views of the water and the architecture along La Playa. Walkers will continue on past the sounds of the zoo to see the quite different sights of another body of water – San Francisco’s natural freshwater lake, Lake Merced – among the many birds, boaters, and fishers.

Single walk tickets now available – $20 per walker

Walk SF will guide a group of 25 people on this approximately 6-mile sections. Kids and well-behaved dogs welcomed on this epic way to experience the city.

Note: this event is different from our regular guided walks, which are free for Walk SF members

Be advised: this walk may include uneven paths, dirt trails, and stairways, as well as street terrain. Participants must be in good health, without any mobility limitations, and able to walk for several hours at a steady pace.

This walking adventure will be a memorable way to experience our city, plus connect with others who want to make our streets safe for all! Plus, your participation supports Walk SF’s urgent advocacy work.
