Take a hike in Crissy Field

  • image

Formerly an army airstrip, Crissy Field is now a restored salt marsh and recreation area, with a 4.3-mile waterfront promenade that wanders through grassy fields, past sheltered beaches, windsurfers and picnic areas, all the way to Fort Point and the Golden Gate Bridge. Start at the informative Crissy Field Center for some background history, then follow the bayfront path past the Farallones Marine Sanctuary center to Torpedo Wharf for a postcard photo of the Golden Gate Bridge. Make a pit stop at the Warming Hut for organic soups, sandwiches, and only-in-San-Francisco books, games and souvenirs. Along the way, there are also kid-friendly attractions such as the House of Air trampoline park, Planet Granite climbing gym, and La Petite Balleen swim school. The trail ends at Fort Point, a fortification built during the Civil War to defend against a battle that never happened. In addition to self-guided and ranger-led tours, there are regular cannon drills and a fascinating film about the building of the Golden Gate Bridge.
