Run the Golden Gate Park to SF Presidio
Join us for a run in San Francisco's Golden Gate park. From the DeYoung Museum through the urban landscape of the Richmond District, we enter the Presidio and learn about its history and the impact the long-ago, man-made forest has had on the environment. The forest, which is in the midst of a reforestation has become the canvas for English-born artist, Andy Goldsworthy. You will traverses the Presidio, from Lovers Lane to Inspiration Point, where you will view two of Mr. Goldsworthy's recent installations -- "Wood Line" and "Spire." Upon return to GGP you will observe the beautiful and historic Conservatory of Flowers. The run culminates at the DeYoung Museum, the site of "Fault Line." This amazing piece of art is so natural that it is easy to overlook. "Fault Line" is not only a beautiful piece of art, but it represents the seismic activity that is a way of life in California and especially San Francisco. This 6 mile run, approximately 1-1/2 hrs, is on pavement and dirt trails. There are several hills and breathtaking views.
