The paths in Golden Gate Park and along Ocean Beach provide a retreat from urban San Francisco and an important part of the growing bike network. There are other paths that meander through the park and provide good walking loops. The trail passes by the museums, sports fields, and botanic gardens that make Golden Gate Park one of the premier urban parks in the country. Bicycle route signage is clear and connects these paths to neighborhoods throughout the city. Pick up the trail at the corner of Fell and Baker for a ride through the Panhandle and then explore Golden Gate Park while hoping that the beach will have some sun when you arrive! The trail along Ocean Beach runs along the Great Highway down to the San Franciso Zoo and near San Francisco State University. Going the other way you can link into the Lands End trail and pass the Cliff House on your way to the Golden Gate bridge.
