A path in San Francisco equipped with views of the aqua blue ocean, glimmering bustling city, landmark Golden Gate Bridge, and the infamous Alcatraz all together in one. This is only made possible with our Golden Gate Promenade trail.
Golden Gate Promenade is a 4.3 miles heaven for runners and bikers from Crissy Field Center to the historic Fort Point (loop). On a sunny day, runners and bikers can observe the wild life around the bay, landscape of the Marina district, small coffee shop hut in a historic building, then finally arrive at Fort Point with a stunning view of the Golden Gate Bridge looking up. On a gloomy, normal San Francisco weather though, the path reaches one’s senses with a melancholy yet romantic vibe with the fog covering parts of the bridge, sounds of the bird crying, and ocean wave crashing against the rocks on the shore.
I discovered this route while going to an exercise session (House of Air, for trampoline lovers) near Fort Point. Right after class as I walked out, I saw lots of people running and cycling by, and got curious where they were going. (Okay, I admit it….I saw another hot guy with golden, smooth, silky hair, fair skin, and six packs running by without a shirt on…then I found myself on the trail).
Enjoy a peek into what the path offers!
Near the end of the trail before Fort Point, there is a stone/marble sign that says:
“To see a World in a Grain of Sand
and a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Ifinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.” – William Blake.
If you want to take a break from the metropolitan setting, enjoy the romantic outdoor scenery while exercising also, then Golden Gate Promenade may be a good choice for you ~
