Hiking is a great way to get some exercise and fresh air. It can also decrease stress, can increase cognitive function, plus its just FUN!
For the 3 years since we’ve lived in San Francisco an Angel Island Hike has been on our list. Angel island is located in San Francisco Bay and is a short ferry ride over. In 1849 the US Navy took possession of the island, military buildings and batteries are scattered throughout it. The Island was considered the “Ellis Island of the West Coast” from 1910- 1940. In 1946 Angel Island was formerly abandoned. Then in 1957 it became a State Park.
We took the Ferry over and did a 5 mile hike on the Perimeter Trail. It was a bit overcast, but a great day! After the hike we took the Ferry to Tiburon for lunch at the Tiburon Grill. We had wine, beer, burgers (veggie burger for me!), and amazing sweet potato fries.
