Trekking the Inside Stretch of Outside Lands

June 7, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Join walk leader Joel Pomerantz, of ThinkWalks, for an insightful, curated three mile walk in San Francisco’s ‘outside lands,’ spanning neighborhoods including NoPa, Lone Mountain, Jordan Park, Anza Vista, and the world-famous Alamo Square.

The walk will start in Golden Gate Park (refer to WHERE below) and follow the new, little-known Oak Woodlands Nature Trail to uncover some of the city’s hidden history, and highlight its nature, and geography. From the trailhead,  you will wind your way south and east to the Lily Pond and then follow the trail to the Panhandle.

From the Park, you will head past McLaren Lodge to a hidden historic site, where you’ll learn a surprising secret involving one of the most famous musicians of all time. Next, you will walk north and climb the Lone Mountain stairway to take in one of San Francisco’s many panoramic views.

After descending back to street level, you will discover a local water mapping feature, and then stop in Anza Vista at the site of the first building in the neighborhood. You will continue heading south and wrap up your walk at the southwest corner of Alamo Square.

The walk will end at Bean Bag Cafe, at 601 Divisadero Street, for an optional lunch.
