Fleet Week Hike 2015!

ou and your friends are invited to join us for a difficult but fantastic hike from Powell street to Sausalito Saturday, October 10th right in the midst of Fleet Week: the Blue Angels and the like will be flying over head the whole way.

This hike is over ten miles and has steep hills, winding stairs and a good 5-6 hours of walking. We’ll go in stores, see the Emporium dome, peak into the cable-car house, get our free sample of Ghirardelli chocolate and watch cruise ships pass under our feet and jets fly over-head as we walk across the Golden Gate. Then we’ll ride a boat back to the Embarcadero for dinner in the city at Osha (amazing Thai food).
