New Hiking Routes

Presidio Explorationexplores the historic Presidio neighborhood and includes points of interest such as the Lyon Street Steps, two artworks by Andy Goldsworthy, Inspiration Point, the San Francisco National Cemetery, plus a number of the

neighborhood's hiking trails. “Tales of the City,” named after the eponymous book series by Armistead Maupin, tours North Beach, Telegraph Hill, and Russian, Hill and covers sights including the Filbert and Greenwich Street Steps, Coit Tower, Lombard Street, Sts. Peter and Paul Church, and Macondray Lane.
