Avenidas Hike: Baker Beach
August 3, 2023 , 9:30 am – 12:30 pm PDT
Please join us for an exhilarating hike from San Francisco’s beautiful Baker Beach to the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Prepare for breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Pacific Ocean.
We will take the Golden Gate Bridge from Baker Beach Trail 5.5 miles with an elevation gain of 685 feet. Our route will take us along the Battery to Bluff Trail, to the California Coastal Trail, to the Golden Gate Bridge Welcome Center. Along the way, you’ll encounter several steep staircases as we ascend from the ocean to the bridge. Upon reaching the Golden Gate Bridge, we’ll have the opportunity to walk halfway across the bridge. At the bridge, there are additional restrooms, a gift store and the Round House Café coffee/snack bar.
The Avenidas Fitness Hike Club offers small group (12 max, including leaders) hikes twice a month for those interested in moderate to moderately challenging hikes. Hikes will be 5 to 8 miles long with a cumulative elevation gain of up to 1200 feet. Hikers should honestly evaluate their abilities before registering. Poles are recommended. No dogs. Lunch is on your own.
