Now climbing every hill in San Francisco may seem like a pretty concrete task, but isn't as easy as it seems because no one can seem to agree on how many hills there are! (This page from SFGazeteer explains the dilemma well.)
My personal goal meant I'd need to create my personal list of hills, so I did this drawing from a few sources:
- SF Gate Article: Peak Experience (53 hills)
- How Many Hills Are There InSan Francisco? (74 hills)
- 47 Hills blog (47 hills)
- Wikipedia (50 hills)
As with my 2014 goal, my plan is to blog about this quest as I complete it. I post photos, history, and key stats about each hill.
While I'm a little behind in my quest—not starting this until late February—I luckily have a good head start—I've already climbed 36 hills. I'll write about the hills I've been to—and hopefully visit the remaining ones before January 1, 2018. Do you want to join me in my quest? If so, copy my list in Google Spreadsheets, empty my "Been There?" column, and start using this as a checklist to track your progress. All right, who else is in?
