There are many scenic routs from which hikers can see the beautiful Golden Gate bridge, North Bay Sausalito area and the distant horizon of the ocean, with cargo ships and sail boats passing by the bay. Hikers can enjoy easy strolls along the ocean beach, or hike the various spots around lands end national park.
There are many pleasant walks in the city.
Downtown offers many beautiful sites. It isn't for the athletes as it is full of cars and people traffic, but it offers many scenic views of the Bay Bridge, Transamerica building, the Yorba Buena gardens and the San Francisco Giants ballpark.
The ocean cliff offers many challenging hikes and rock climbing treks for hikers of all fitness levels, with views of the beautiful bay all along the hikes. For more inner-city hikes and views, California street from pacific Heights to Downtown offers hilly ups and downs with views of every angle of the city that can be seen from the peeks. Similarly, upper pacific heights offers the same hilly exercise walk opportunity with views of the city and the bay with the Alcatraz bridge in the background.
