Barbary Coast Trail Reviews & Ratings
An excellent introduction to historic San Francisco! Get the guide book at the Tourist Information Office in the (very sketchy) Bart Powell Street Station. This is also near the beginning of the Barbary Coast Trail. Once you find the trail, you'll see very clear markers - big bronze plaques more than a foot across embedded in the concrete sidewalk - that indicate every turn of the trail. This is a 3.8 mile walk so get your mind (and feet) ready. It will take you three times as long as you think because every stop is worth spending time to read, study and absorb. And there are 15 significant stops along the way. There are plenty of cafes, coffee shops, and restaurants along the path so you could take time off your tour for lunch. The trail starts near one terminus of the cable car and ends at the other so this makes a nice way to return to your starting point.
There is a book titled, “Walking The Barbary Coast Trail” by Daniel Bacon. It tells all about the history and describes the things that you pass on the Trail. I have taken many friends and family on this walk and it is always a big hit.
A very cool walk. Took us bye some great bars and bookstores
