Cole Valley to the Mission District: 16 July 2017

This ramble started at La Boulangerie de San Francisco on Cole Street. It was then straight up to Tank Hill, and the route continued to Kite Hill. We descended Kite Hill via a circuitous course and then walked east on Eighteenth Street through the Castro District; passing Mission High School in the Mission District. We had a quick bite to eat at Taqueria Cancun on Mission Street. After which, we accessed BART at the Sixteenth Street Mission BART Station.

These four houses were constructed in 1876; the houses are on Lexington Street in the Mission. These dwellings escaped incineration during the 18 April 1906 earthquake and fire by being located less than one block from the fire's area of destruction. Click on the image to see the full-size photograph.

The distance traveled was approximately 4.4 miles (7.1 kilometers). The cumulative elevation gain was about 995 feet (155.5 meters). Mile markers are displayed on the GPS generated track. Click on the image to see the full-size map.
