Distance

4.7 miles out and back

Paid Parking

Where

Find metered parking on Harbor Drive near Waterfront Park, then hoof it south to loop around both Embarcadero Marina parks before coming back.

 

Why We Love It

This cool and breezy run has scenery that makes you feel like you’re modeling in a tourism ad. Say cheese!

 

Where to Refuel

Head to Rustic Root for their rooftop brunch menu, including breakfast risotto or California eggs Benedict. Or at Café 222, pick from a range of waffles (pumpkin, pecan, blueberry cornbread).
