This is a nature hike through Crissy Field and over the Golden Gate Bridge (GGB). This is also a social hike and there will be plenty of opportunity to meet & mingle and make new friends. Things you will see include: great views of Alcatraz, the Wave Organ, beaches, Fort Point Historic Site, and of course great views of and from the Golden Gate Bridge. About 5 miles round trip, very casual, all flat except for one big hill (240ft elevation).
