We'll start with a tour of the Japanese Tea Garden, then climb up to Stow Lake. We'll explore San Francisco's second highest sand dune, a place known as "the island," even before it was surrounded by water. See a waterfall funded by a railroad tycoon and a nesting tree for California's largest water bird. We'll cross the Roman Bridge and hike up the Carriage Path to the top of Strawberry Hill, the site of the Sweeny Observatory and then descend down Huntington Falls to the Taipei Pavilion. This tour may be abbreviated, at the discretion of the guide, due to weather.
