The San Francisco Crosstown Trail crosses San Francisco diagonally from southeast to northwest. Set out for a trek on the entire 17-mile trail or pick one or more of the 5 sections easily reachable by transit for a shorter stroll.
The trail is not signed, so be sure to bring a map or turn by turn route description.
If you have a smartphone, download the OuterSpatial app. This will let you download all the cue sheets and maps, and show you where you are on the map in real time!
You can download maps suitable for printing at different sizes. These are more detailed versions of the map above, with complete street and trail names. Each set covers the entire trail. They pair well with the cue sheets. Maps courtesy of Pease Press.

Downloadable Route Descriptions
Route Descriptions, in the form of a cue sheet, provide detailed turn by turn directions to follow the route. There is one for each direction, and one for walking (hiking) or bicycling. They work well in the browser or printed. A GPX file is also available for those who want to follow using a GPS or similar.
