San Francisco is one of the premier city travel destinations, reknowned mostly for the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, Lombard Street, Fisherman's Wharf and of course, the prison island of Alcatraz. San Francisco also has some beautiful natural scenery and some of the coolest vantage points of any city on the planet.

At Urban Hiker SF, recommended by MetroMarks, you can make the most of San Francisco’s unique geography and history by going on an urban hiking tour!


See the city. Take a hike!


Alexandra Kenin from Urban Hiker SF explains how travelers can enjoy San Francisco with her unique and hiking tours.....

"Let’s face it – you’re too cool for a tour bus. Urban hiking gets you killer views with your workout while you explore the secret stairways, hilltop views, and hiking trails of San Francisco. Whether you’ve been in San Francisco for 10 minutes, 10 days, or 10 years, you’re guaranteed to see something new. My hikes are moderately strenuous, so you should be able to walk 5 miles at a time including hills and stairs. Children are welcome as long as they can walk that distance. Children 13 and up should be fine."

"I just moved to SF and this tour was a great way to get to know some of the city's hidden gems as well as learn interesting, little-known SF facts. And it was great to see how much you can do/see in SF on your own two feet. I can't wait to do another!" SP_718 from TripAdvisor
