Outdoor Adventures

As we continue to shelter-in-place here are some great ways to get outside responsibly! Although not mandated for outdoor recreation such as walking, hiking, bicycling or running it is recommended that a face covering (cover nose and mouth) should be worn anytime a person is outside of their home.

1) Download Alltrails (hike, bike, run) and MapMyHike (hike and bike trails) apps (FREE) on your phone for trail guides near you.

2) 49-Mile Scenic Route (PDF from sftodo.com).

3) Slow Streets Program: The SFMTA’s new Slow Streets program is designed to limit through traffic on certain residential streets and allow them to be used more as a shared space for foot and bicycle traffic

4) Golden Gate Park’s JFK Drive limited to pedestrians: JFK Drive will now be closed to vehicular traffic from Kezar Drive to Transverse Drive. Shelley Drive will be closed to vehicular traffic for the duration of the stay home order.
