Layer, Layer, Layer... San Francisco is famous for its micro-climates and mercurial weather. Summer temperatures at Ocean Beach can be foggy and chilly, with temperatures as low as the mid-50s (10C), while in downtown San Francisco it can be very comfortable, in the mid-70s (21C). As these are coastal walks, wearing layers of clothing ensures you will be comfortable throughout the day.
Comfortable Walking Shoes - We recommend a comfortable pair of walking shoes, as we guide you on relatively easy, non-technical trails and footpaths. Our coastal walks are rated as moderate, with a couple of steep climbs thrown in. If you're comfortable walking for 3 to 4 hours at a leisurely pace, with some ups and downs, these walks are for you.
Sunscreen - Yes, you can get a nasty sunburn, even on a foggy day. Screen up....even when the sun is not shining. Please use SPF 30 or more.
Water - Keep well hydrated....well....that's a no-brainer. Drink before you're thirsty. A quart/liter size water bottle should work fine for our half-day walks.
BYOL (Bring your own lunch) - Please plan on bringing your own lunch, as we will be picnicking mid-route. Details of where you can pick up tasty sandwiches, salads, etc. are under each specific tour heading.
Transport - You are responsible for arranging you own transport to and from each walk's meeting point.
12 Years Old and Over - We love kids, however, due to the distance of our walks and somewhat challenging terrain, our trips are limited to age 12 years of age and over.
Rain or Shine - Our tours run rain or shine.
Unfortunately our routes are not wheelchair accessible.
