City Walks with Dogs: San Francisco Reviews
This is a wonderful guide to many of the prettiest and most relaxing walks in the city. If you like a nice easy walk focused on trees and grass, you will like every walk in this book (i.e. this is not a collection for architecture or history buffs). I have many guide books written for people alone or for people with dogs, and this is the one I use all the time. It sits open on the counter at all times, and almost every weekend I look through the cards to see where we should go. I usually just grab the card or cards for the chosen area and drive to where the walk starts and we hop out and start wandering around. You can have a great time without exactly following the card, but it just puts you into the right place to get started. Many of these areas I had not heard about or heard about vaguely but never appreciated before, and now I understand how beautiful and in some cases stunning the San Francisco public parks can be. One slight downside is that many of the walks are quite short and some of them overlap. For instance, there are three clustered in Golden Gate park and two in the Mission Dolores area that really could be combined into one intermediate size walk. Just a couple of the walks are very urban and touristy (such as the Castro one) but that is something that can be fun on the right kind of day. I keep hoping a second box will come out with new venues although I suspect this one already contains all of the best walks.
After only using one card, we actually went back to the area to explore some more off of the route. My gf is not as easily impressed compared to myself, which is saying something. Minus one for no app version.
I liked it. Most of the trails listed are well-known to local dog owners, so there wasn't much new in these cards. The description is very useful.
I have lived in San Francisco for years but just got a dog recently. This is a great book for anyone trying to get out and about with their pooch and has some great spots highlighted. Too bad I recused the laziest Basset Hound ever that has no interest and takes 40 minutes to walk a mile...
Being new to town with two dogs in an apartment, this has ben an indispensable tool not only for getting our pugs the exercise they need, but also in getting us familiar with new areas of this amazing city.
Really cool "book". The card format is great, very convenient to carry just the info that you need on the trail. Highly recommended.
