Wag! Walkers know Golden Gate Heights

Golden Gate Heights, although a relatively new name for the area, isn't too new when it comes to its development, which began in the 1920's. But because this neighborhood is quite literally on top of some very serious heights, some gaining elevation at over 750 feet, it wasn't until the '40's and '50's that homes began to be built.聽


Today the area is known as a suburban haven for young singles and families looking for a quiet lifestyle with the option to venture into a colorful, fun-filled city. And due to its extraordinary聽views and beautiful parks, it's also visited by a number of locals who live in the surrounding neighborhoods. It's recently been named one of the "hottest" regions in the Bay Area, mainly because many of its real estate聽listings are bought over asking price.聽

However, this isn't necessarily an area that one would consider booming. You won't find shopping malls or bustling streets here. It's mainly humble homes and lavish landings in Golden Gate Heights.聽

What is the terrain like in Golden Gate Heights?

Unlike the rest of San Francisco, Golden Gate Heights breaks away from the traditional grid structure that many cities utilize. Similar compromises in infrastructure occur in other parts of SF, like the Twin Peaks neighborhood for instance, which goes to show that serious elevation can only lead to serious winding, curving, twisting roads.聽

Unfortunately, whether this is due to the age of the area or difficulty in placing footpaths that hug the curves of hills, sidewalks in Golden Gate Heights are spotty - sometimes existing on only one side of the street, sometimes vanishing once you turn a corner, and sometimes not present at all. Streets and sidewalks in the area can be a little rough, showing the wear and tear of time in their cracks and holes, but it's never anything too precarious for four paws and the two feet that lead them.聽

If you're up for conquering hills, this neighborhood is for you. Two of SF's steepest peaks call Golden Gate Heights home: Grand View Hill and Larsen Peak. Some of the steeper inclines or declines - depending on your direction - are on Ortega and Moraga (has stairs) streets. However, you and your pooch will be rewarded as both of the streets' highest points come to an end inside parks.聽

There are unnamed peaks in the neighborhood, as well, reaching over 750 feet, and close by is Forest Hill, which is over 800. While these heights are impressive, they still don't surpass the elevation of other SF-famous inclines, such as Twin Peaks, Mt. Davidson, or Mt. Sutro (all over 900 feet). So if you're looking for even more of a challenging adventure then tour all the peaks San Francisco has to offer by mapping a little tour of your own.聽

How many greenways are there in Golden Gate Heights?


Grandview Park contains聽Grandview Hill, which is over 600 feet and can offer stunning views to any Fog City explorer who doesn't mind scaling a hillside. For an incline聽that's fun and beautiful to look at, enter the park at its west side where the Mosaic Stairway leads you, step-by-step, with swirling blue and green mosaic glass. The trails and shrubbery of the park give it a semi-arid, coastal feel, complete with sand footpaths. Erosion is common in this soft footing, so fences have been installed along the walkways as a safety measure by the city. At its peak, you'll find unencumbered views and a bench to take a seat on, letting your furry friend sit and happily pant, pink tongue and all.聽

Golden Gate Heights Park contains聽Larsen Peak, which is over 750 ft tall, requiring quite the effort if you want the rewarding views of the Pacific聽Ocean at its top. If the promise of gorgeous views - on non-foggy days, at least - isn't enough, then the way the park caters to dog-owners and their pets will. Dog-friendly water fountains, doggie bag dispensers and trash cans for them once used, plus open space for pups to run and play聽all make Golden Gate Heights Park a great walking destination for your little Rufus. There's a duality to this public space, too. Part of the park is manicured, with benches and tennis courts, while the other part is forested and features dirt paths if you're looking for a more secluded, rustic hike.聽

Hawk Hill Park is a little unrefined, offering its visitors hiking paths that are sandy, steep, and sometimes overgrown with local flora. If you and your dog enjoy a challenge, head to Hawk Hill and enjoy a natural, rugged聽expedition.聽Rocky Outcrop Park, which is more of a protected natural area without designated trails, may be another area in Golden Gate Heights you'll enjoy if you like primitive hikes.聽
