Hike Description

Map(s) of perambulations below.

I was actually being paid by the City and County of San Francisco while I did this one, here is the relevant portion of my work schedule. Long enough for a quick jaunt up and down the hill, even if I hadn't been early to arrive at the terminal due to a situation beyond my control downtown.

A little short to be called a hike, at less than a mile, but strenuous all the same, considering I went tearing up the Lyon Street Steps to gain the 350 feet to the top of Pacific Heights. For a change, I came down the Baker Street Steps. Unsurprisingly, spectacular views over the Bay.

This hike was the second of a series of hikes in San Francisco to address a surprising absence in my local hiking...the total absence of the Hills of San Francisco from my peak list. San Francisco Peaks website. My current highest peak in San Francisco is Strawberry Hill (in Golden Gate Park) at 420 feet (23rd highest overall). On this trip I topped #27-Pacific Heights (388').

Summary and Technical Details

About 0.9 miles, 350 feet of ascent.

Weather and Conditions

The weather was cool and breezy. Bright and clear, if a bit hazy, perfect for a quick peak bagging.
