Too many joggers for me if you want a nice leisurely stroll enjoying the scenery. Two times now when I have went to enjoy walking my dogs, a track team called West Valley Track has been sprinting around the inner lake trail with several groups of runners nearly knocking us iff the trail several times. It was highly annoying since they are running at full speed in groups of 10 or more and doing several laps. When I inquired with the coach about why he has so many grouos running at the same time kicking up a lot of dust and nearly running us over every few minutes he just shrugged me if. So what was once a nice walk has now turned into a must avoid unfortunately.

I biked Golden State Park in August as part of my route from downtown to Sausalito. What an amazing park! There's so much to explore -- from manicured gardens to grassy stretches to wooded knolls; even a windmill and bison(!) -- I know I didn't get to see it all. The park is on a hill, so it tests your endurance for sure! I don't have any specific advice, except to give yourself plenty of time and don't forget to visit the beach at the bottom of the hill/park. It's surreal to be amongst all that green one moment and then squish your toes in the sand, overlooking the ocean, just minutes later.

Great for running!

As a local the less I'm walking next to a road the better. This is worth doing on a weekend when traffic is blocked off of JFK on the eastern end of the park. This hiking route in particular has you going through the botanical garden which $ for admission, while beautiful - not worth paying to simply walk through on the way somewhere else.
