32-page full-color pocket guide
Includes map, site descriptions, illustrations, historical photos
ISBN #9780964680424

The Barbary Coast Trail is San Francisco’s official historical walking trail. Marked with a series of bronze medallions and arrows set in the sidewalk, the trail connects twenty of San Francisco’s most important historic sites.

Sites include:

  • National historic landmarks
  • Plaza where Sam Brannan kicked off the Gold Rush
  • Barbary Coast and Gold Rush era buildings
  • Chinatown temples and tongs
  • Site of Pony Express headquarters
  • Italianate Victorians
  • Historic ships
  • Beautiful views and much more . . .

I seriously recommend this walk. Take the pocket guide so you don’t get lost and you get all the historical information. Take a friend so you have someone to eat and drink with when you make spontaneous stops.
