OLLI Walkers Group - Aug 20 Thurs 10am, Three Libraries Walk
Three libraries walk:
Starting Point: Presidio Public Library, 3150 Sacramento Street. Meet outside.
End Point: Park Street Library, 1833 Page Street.
Date: Thursday, August 20, 2015
Starting Time: 10.00 a.m.
Ending Time: Approximately 12.30 p.m.
Distance: 4-4.5 miles with an optional 1.5 mile add on after we get to the Park Street library.
Elevation Change: about 300 feet mostly in the first part of the walk.
The walk will begin promptly at 10.00 a.m. on Thursday, August 20th at our first library, the Presidio Public Library at 3150 Sacramento Street. From there we will walk through the Presidio Heights neighborhood which includes some of San Francisco’s most gorgeous houses and into Park Presidio and on to the Mountain Lake Trail. We will leave the trail at 9th Avenue and walk to our second library in Inner Richmond. From there we will go to Golden Gate Park and meander through to Haight Ashbury where we will get to our third library on Page Street. This will probably be around 12-12.30 p.m.
At this point, we would have walked about four miles with about a 300 foot elevation change. There will then be an optional 1-1.5 mile circular walk from the Page Street library to admire some of the painted lady houses and other sights in that vicinity. Lunch somewhere in Haight Ashbury for those walkers who would like this.
Please bring water, sunscreen and layers of clothing.
