Sausalito to San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf: 21 January 2016

The weather forecast for Thursday 21 January was overcast and cloudy, but without rain in the forecast. I put together a last minute ramble to take advantage of the rain-free forecast. Here was the plan: Take BART from Berkeley to the Embarcadero in San Francisco. Go to the Ferry Building and board the ferry leaving at 10:00 am for Sausalito. Then walk from Sausalito to Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. After arriving at Fisherman's Wharf board a streetcar going to the Embarcadero and then get on BART for the ride back to Berkeley. It proved to be a successful plan.



The approximate distance traveled was 9.7 miles. The approximate cumulative elevation gain was 650 feet. Mile markers are shown on the GPS generated track. Click on the image to see the full-size map.
