On the west side of Twin Peaks near 7th avenue, there exists a watershed, which used to be one of San Francisco’s major reservoirs.

This area has been through a lot over the years. Sewers flow underneath the deteriorating concrete bottom; Muni Metro trains run below the creek.

During this tour, you’ll examine the secret backwoods of the watershed where no official trails go! You’ll stumble upon some renegade trails that have been appearing, but for the most part, this area remains secret.

Learn about the tumultuous past of this area as you discover more about the undeniable link between nature and the growth of San Francisco.

Note: The hike length is about 5 miles, including some hills. Be prepared to visit sandy or muddy remote places, some not on any known map.
