Hiking in the City

Living in a major metropolitan city doesn’t mean you need to eliminate hiking from your choice of hobbies.

Whether it’s a local walking tour of San Francisco, an escape from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, or the forested trails outside of Atlanta, you’re sure to find an adventure waiting for you.

San Francisco

While there are plenty of parks and rolling hills in the Bay Area, we put it on this list for the exercise and heart rate you can experience just by walking around the concrete jungle within ‘The City.’

Start at the Golden Gate Bridge, head east to Fisherman’s Wharf, down to Coit Tower, over to the Transamerica Pyramid, and finish at Union Square. That’s if you think you can make it. It’s not for the faint of heart…

Los Angeles

Known for its glitz and glamour, Los Angeles is also surround by the Los Padres, Angeles, San Bernardino and Joshua Tree National Forests.

Or if you’re looking for something totally unique, hike up to the Hollywood sign! It’s fun for the entire family, with a great view.


If you’re in Atlanta proper (or in Athens visiting Todd’s alma mater), you’re not too far from Coosa Valley at the southern tip of the Appalachian Mountains.

If you’re looking for something more in the city, it’s still a beautiful area for you to enjoy with several trails and parks to choose from. And if you happen to sprain an ankle, contact the nearest location of East Georgia Regional Medical Center.
