Description

JOIN THE AUTHORS of the SF Guide, Walking San Francisco's 49 Mile Scenic Drive, for a 4.5 mile hike along a section of the 49 Mile Scenic Drive:


Walk #8 (of 17 Walks): Lake Merced

For 80 years SF's 49 Mile Scenic Drive has directed tourists and locals alike around the Best of SF—and outerlying areas. Now it's SF's new walking adventure. Come join the fun—WALK the Drive.

Walk #8 takes us all the way around Lake Merced -- with a special murder site stop! Is Lake Merced man made or natural? How is Lake Merced connected to grizzly bears and penguins? Kit Carson, Clark Gable, John Madden--what do they have to do with Lake Merced? So many questions....

As we walk by all the natural beauty, the authors will also share a few tidbits of the most-likely-true history and fun factoids they discovered about Lake Merced while researching the guidebook.

FREE. Gratuities appreciated.
