What you'll do

*If this #1 rated experience is sold out please consider doing my Hidden Stairways of Golden Gate Heights which covers much of the same ground including the beautiful mosaic tiled stairs. Click my profile picture to book or copy & paste this URL: https://abnb.me/QCEg2SwcMV?user_id=164345542&s=50 Though only 4 miles in length, this gorgeous walking tour of San Francisco's hidden stairways is breathtaking. See gorgeous mosaic tiled steps and vistas that most San Franciscans don't even know exist. You'll also discover beautiful neighborhoods that tourists rarely see. I'll provide commentary, context and some history along the way. Generally SF is dry May-October. There can be fog in the summertime, mostly in the morning. Temps rarely above 70F (21C) or below 50F (10C). Rain may cancel. You'll get your 10,000 steps in for the day and climb around 65 floors! Don't worry though, there's plenty of breaks in between stairs and there's as much down as there is up! Guests should be reasonably fit. Though we don't cover many miles, some of the terrain is steep. We will be hiking up and down many wondrous steps and hills. It will be necessary to carry small children as strollers are not suitable. If you bring a guest that’s under 18, it’s your responsibility to make sure the activities they participate in are age-appropriate. Message me if you have questions: gpmcquaid@gmail.com

A former marathon runner, I know the city's best views but now prefer a more moderate hike on gorgeous stairs! This walk is done at a leisurely pace & suitable for most people. If a date and time that you'd prefer is unavailable please send me a message and I'll see if I can accommodate you: gpmcquaid@gmail.com Be sure to ask me about #52marathons52weeeks
