Golden Gate Park Bike Path

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Golden Gate Park Bike Path winds through San Francisco's famous city park, providing both a retreat from urban life and an important link in the city's growing bike network. The paved 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 the path to neighborhoods throughout the city.

Other paths that meander through the park are limited to pedestrians only but provide good walking loops for those on foot. At the southern edge of the park, trail users of all types can continue on the Great Highway Bike Path for sweeping views of Ocean Beach, as well as access to the San Francisco Zoo in the south and the most recent incarnation of the Cliff House restaurant in the north.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available along the internal roads throughout Golden Gate Park. Be sure to obey any posted parking restrictions.
