This urban hike winds and wanders through multiple stairways, alleyways, and hilltops in the North Beach, Telegraph Hill, and Russian Hill neighborhoods. On this route, you’ll visit the Filbert and Greenwich Street steps up and down from Coit Tower, climb the curvy section of Lombard Street, and explore multiple little-known parks. In addition, you’ll learn the history of your Levi’s, discover one of the most romantic spots in the city in Jack Early Park, stroll Macondray Lane (the real Barbary Lane from the book series Tales of the City), and see where Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio took their wedding photos.
