Rise and Shine Staircase Walk

January 27, 2018 @ 6:00 am - 10:00 am

Join Walk SF veteran walk leader Aaron Dence to start the New Year off with an inspired sunrise walk to scale some of the many hidden staircases of the Castro while winding your way up towards the summit of Twin Peaks as part of a heart-pumping three and a half mile route.

Along the hike, you will explore secret staircases and little-known neighborhood playgrounds with adult-friendly cement slides, journey through streets and natural trails to pass through local pocket parks and natural spaces, and enjoy incredible views of the city, as it wakes up to its 837,000+ residents.

You’ll also arrive at the second highest point in San Francisco in time to watch the sunrise from the roof of the city (be sure to bring your cameras or camera-ready mobile phones to snap a picture of the glorious sights).

Your walk begins in the Castro at Philz Coffee (though make note, they won’t be open at the early start time). Stops will include Seward Park, and Tank and Kite Hills. The walk ends at Réveille Coffee Co. for an optional breakfast and well-deserved coffee.
