The Stairs and Secret Trails of Telegraph Hill 

Join Aaron Dence, one of Walk SF’s most popular volunteer hike leaders, for a fun exploration all of the stairs and the secret trails in and around Telegraph Hill.

This will be another breathtaking hike where participants will enjoy a series of magnificent views, pass by stately homes lining the staircases, and take in the rich history of Coit Tower. Plus, there’s a good chance of spotting Telegraph Hill’s most famous residents — the wild parrots of San Francisco. Follow Aaron as he leads walkers along three relatively unknown trails, providing some distinctive perspectives of this northeastern corner of the city.

Hikers will even get to see where Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio posed for photos after their civil ceremony, a castle, and mosaic art sculptures.
