    Take a walking tour to the next level! Embark on a 3-hour urban jungle hike through San Francisco to experience the city's wild side. Tackle the city's famous hills including Kite Hill and Tank Hill, discover unmarked trails in hidden forests, soak up sweeping views from atop Twin Peaks, and visit off-the-hidden path areas such as the quirky Seward Street Slides. With all the lush greenery and hilly landscapes, you won't believe you're still in San Francisco! Meet your guide in front of the Castro Theatre at your selected departure time. Be sure to wear walking shoes or hiking boots and brace for trail dust on this moderate 5-mile (8-km) trek through central San Francisco.

    Entering a hidden eucalyptus forest, you'll forget you're in an urban city as you hike along the dirt trails behind Sutro Tower, an iconic 3-pronged antenna tower. Take an unmarked hiking trail to the summit of famous Twin Peaks, where you'll be treated to a breathtaking panorama of San Francisco and the East Bay in the distance.
    Your next hilly adventure is Tank Hill, located 650 feet (198 km) in elevation, where you'll get a panoramic view of Golden Gate Park, the Golden Gate Bridge and Downtown San Francisco.
    Make you way back via the 211-step Pemberton Place Stairway, flanked by beautiful landscaping brimming with beautiful plants, trees and flowers such as azaleas and Japanese maples.
    By the end of your urban jungle hike, you'll leave with a whole new appreciation for the beauty and diversity of San Francisco. You'll end your tour back at the Castro Theatre.
