I wandered around San Francisco for three days, averaging 15 miles of walking per day! Although my feet felt the effects by the end of the trip, it was completely worth it. Some of the best photos came in completely unexpected moments, like the trampoline practice in Crissy Fields on my way back from Battery Cranston.
I’d highly recommend walking west from Fort Mason Center toward the Golden Gate Bridge, past the marina. Stop by the Palace of Fine Arts to take in some amazing architecture and rest on one of the benches in the shades before continuing on the boardwalk past Crissy Fields and onto Torpedo Wharf.
Then take the stairs up to Golden Gate Bridge Pavilion before crossing over to the other side for the Coastal Trail. If you have extra energy you can continue the trek to Marshall Beach, but my legs were feeling the miles at this point and I still had a walk back to the hotel.
