Join Walk SF’s Walk Lab on Saturday, June 8, for a special walk to christen and experience the new Cross Town Trail that officially opens in June 2019.
The full 16-mile route spans San Francisco from Southeast to Northwest. We will take you on a 8-mile guided walk along the southeastern part of the route on June 8, as we make history as some of the first people to walk the Cross Town Trail.
The walk goes through lesser known parts of the city, including Sunrise Point in Candlestick Point State Recreation Area, the southern-facing waterfront, Executive Park, Little Hollywood, the Visitacion Valley Greenway, Philosopher’s Way, and University Mound, the bell-shaped neighborhood of St. Mary’s Park.
The walk will start at the Visitacion Children’s play area and the official end point will be Glen Park BART station, but participants will be given the full 16-mile route map and can continue as long as they want.
This walking adventure will be a memorable way to experience a new route through our city, plus connect with others who want to make our streets safe for all! Plus, your participation supports Walk SF’s urgent advocacy work.
Tickets: Single or group tickets can be purchased. We encourage you to team up with friends and colleagues to make it a social event of the season! In order to get group preferences, we encourage you to purchase up to 4 tickets together.
Be advised… the Cross Town Trail includes uneven paths, dirt trails, and stairways, as well as street terrain. Participants must be in good health, without any mobility limitations, and able to walk for several hours at a steady pace. Guides will lead walkers through 8 miles with bathroom, food, and water stops, but walkers should bring their own food and water for the walk.
We’re excited to walk the Cross Town Trail, which was a collaborative effort between several outdoor and trail groups:
