Golden Gate Park - Road Running
The coastline and serene forest groves are par for the course for a run in San Francisco. But add to the mix a waterfall, windmills, and buffalo (yes, buffalo!), and you have the makings of a quintessentially SF outing. Slip on your sneakers for a run at the city’s favorite green space, Golden Gate Park, and you’ll be delighted by all these unexpected distractions.
The most popular routes are a one-mile loop and a five-mile loop.
