We hiked the full width of the City from bay to breakers. following the official course of the world famous Bay to Breakers race. The course took us down to Howard St., through the Civic Center, and up to the Hayes St. hill which gave us great views of Alamo Park and the famous “Painted Ladies of San Francisco" victorian houses. The remaining miles were through the Panhandle and Golden Gate Park were fabulous. We made few stops at Golden Gate Park – the Conservatory of Flowers, the Music Concourse, the de Young Museum and the observatory tower.  We took a lunch break at Stow Lake. After that, we walked pass the Fly Casting Pools, Speedway Meadows and the Polo Fields now the site of the annual “Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival”. After we crossed the Finish Line at the Great Highway across from Ocean Beach, we returned via the muni metro N-Judah line that took us to any of the Bart stations downtown. It was a great walk thru the City. Total distance was 9.5 miles with moving time of 3 hours.
