The Barbary Coast Trail is a walking trail through the older areas of San Francisco. Many places of historic interest are highlighted along the way. Some date back to the Barbary Coast era, while others, like a World War II submarine, are more recent. The trial include the old United States Mint, historic landmarks, Gold Rush era buildings, Chinatown historic sites, historic ships, Fisherman?s Wharf, North Beach, murals, and panoramic views.
The trail is designated by bronze medallions and arrows embedded in the sidewalk. Printed guides are available (for a fee) on-line or at several locations within the City. See their website for the latest list of locations. Each end of the walking trail is conveniently connected by the Powell-Hyde cable car line.
The entire trial is just under four miles.
