Trip leader: Scott B, joined by Robert P.
The goal on this walk was to go over a bunch of hills at a fast clip. Scott was aiming for 6-7 miles in about two hours. Starting and ending at Marina Green.
As I walked to the starting point from home, I warmed up with 2.25 miles and 150' of elevation gain in 35 minutes (3.8 mph)
Our actual hike was 7.75 milies and 1100' of elevation gain in 2:10 (3.6 mph). From Marina Green, we headed east along the waterfront to the foot of the Greenwich St steps, we then crossed the tops of Telegraph Hill, Russian Hill, Lafayette Heights and Pacific Heights, before dropping down through the Presidio and crossing the very attractive and parklike Letterman Digital Arts Center.
The weather was sunny and cool.
