A milestone of car-free transportation, JFK Drive, which runs through the heart of San Francisco's Golden Gate Park has recently become car-free. The 1.5 mile eastern section of JFK drive is closed to cars, and the rest of the route dives south of JFK Drive along a completely car-free route. The 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 is available at several spots along the internal roads throughout Golden Gate Park. Be sure to obey any posted parking restrictions. See TrailLink Map for more information.
