San Francisco Trail Maps

The Bay Area is one of most populated areas of the Golden State, although it does offer some of the best “city hiking” anywhere around. Located next to the coast, this area has beaches, cliffs, waterfalls, redwood groves and numerous local mountains.

Several brands of hiking maps exist for the San Francisco Bay Area. National Geographic, Tom Harrison, Wilderness Press.
