First time ever in San Fran. Went on a morning run down to the coast and back through Golden Gate Park. Absolutely loved the tall trees. Don't usually see such beautiful greenery in Southern Cali. Can't wait to go back and explore some more!
Yes, wonderful morning hike/run. But I want to comment that the precise distance of the trail loop is 1.017 miles. 5370 feet. I have measured that several times with a 3 foot diameter rolling wheel. That is staying within a foot or two of the shortest distance around the curves. As a runner, I'm interested in precise distances to get an accurate view of distance covered.

I've walked countless times here. And have taken countless boat tours. Always enjoyable. A nice easy hike up Strawberry Hill for nice views of the Richmond and Sunset Districts.

The best public park in the world as far as I'm concerned.

It was very peaceful along the lake. We saw squirrels, geese, turtles. Bridges and waterfalls. A little log shack with food to enjoy. Easy walk even with bad knee.
