In June 2019, we launched the San Francisco Crosstown Trail, crossing our fingers that people would explore and enjoy it. And you have. The Trail is now a huge attraction for walkers, runners, and cyclists — both local and from afar.
We’re celebrating the Trail’s first anniversary by inviting you to venture out on your own, during the entire month of June. Choose your day and your distance — any of the Trail’s five segments or the entire 17 miles.
Our celebration is spread across the whole month to avoid crowding. Keep these things in mind to keep parks and neighborhoods safe and healthy:
- Go solo or with members of your own household.
- Bring a face covering and wear it when you are within 30 feet of others.
- Keep at least six feet apart from people not part of your household.
- Carry water and hand sanitizer.
- Wait to walk the trail at a later date if you have to travel from out of town to get there. Celebrate with a walk at your local park instead.
- Stay home if you feel sick.
Go to our maps and route descriptions page for current maps, app, and directions. Note that the Laguna Honda trail system is closed until further notice. Use Woodside Ave. as a detour between Twin Peaks Blvd. and Forest Hill MUNI.
City parks are generally open for water and restroom breaks, but the same may not be true for state and national parks — it’s good to check ahead of time.
No doubt, there are plenty of trails, streets, and open spaces right in your own neighborhood for you, your family, and friends to explore. Together Bay Area has put together a handy “know before you go” guide to our regional parks. Enjoy (safely and responsibly) as much healthy outdoor exercise as you can this and every month.
