Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
For the days when you feel stuck behind your desk or mired in the glut of devices around you, a hike in San Francisco, Marin, Oakland or the wider Bay Area might be just what you need. Listed among some of the very best things to do in San Francisco, this region’s hikes promise fresh eucalyptus-scented air, open cliffs, stunning views of the ocean, redwood forests and a free workout to boot. So, if you’re feeling the need to escape the city and explore the Bay Area, but don’t have time for a full day trip from San Francisco, just step outside and let your feet show you the way.
