“walk down, take the Presidio (PresidiGo-crissy field) shuttle back”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

Wonderful view of the Golden Gate Bridge and not crowded. We started at the Palace of Fine Arts(-which is incredibly beautiful) after leaving the Muni. We wandered down the beach toward the bridge, but you can't get onto the bridge from crissy field. I did not know at the time, but there is a Presidio shuttle which will take you back! It picks you up at Stillwell hall. This would have made our walk a bit less stressful-some of our party was getting tired and we were under a time constraint. Look at the map at PresidiGo schedule "around the park" at presidio.gov. The trail is flat and easy, but wear your layers. There is a little cafe at Crissy field center.

“Fun or relaxing spot with great views”
Reviewed 19 November 2013 via mobile

Stopped here while en route to bike across the bridge. It's a great place to sit in the sun and read a book or play frisbee or fly a kite, or do whatever it is you want to do. The views of the bridge are some of the best I think from this spot, and it's often a lot less crowded than some other spots around. There is also lots of walking/biking that goes through here.

“Seaside park”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

This is a very busy park with great views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. Just below Presidio Park, it was a nice walk & we did a huge loop that included the Presidio, Crissy Field and then the Palace of Fine Art. There was some random teenages in large groups playing instruments all over. We think it was some sort of "art in the park" thing. We also got to see the intense and frequent changes of fog to clear to mist that happens in the bay and it was extrordinary...

“Great for a run and a stroll!”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

We drove out here in the morning for a run near the Golden Gate Bridge. It was pretty foggy but nice for a flat run.

After checking out of our hotel we came back -- this time the fog had lifted and there were many families picnicking and lots of people enjoying the view of the famous Golden Gate Bridge.

This wasn't on our travel list but we were very glad to come out here and probably will be back on another visit!

“Beautiful View of the Golden Gate”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

We walked from Lombard Street towards Fisherman's Wharf all the way to Crissy Field and then on to the Golden Gate bridge. It was a beautiful walk. The beach is very nice. It wasn't overly busy when we went. There were quite a few people who had their dogs in this area and some people were riding rental bikes.

The view of the bridge is stunning the closer you get. We sat at Torpedo Wharf for awhile. It was beautiful outside and it was nice to catch some sun rays here and watch the locals fish here.
