    Route Description for Bernal Heights Park Trail

    Get outside and experience nature along the Bernal Heights Park Trail. This lovely nature trail is accessible to hikers of all ages and ability levels, offering wonderful scenery of the city and the charming green space. Perfect for a lunchtime escape, a picnic destination, or a spot to watch the sunset—this route sees plenty of traffic. Those seeking a more secluded adventure are encouraged to head out on weekday mornings.

    Embark on your journey along the Bernal Heights Park Trail from Moultrie Street. Here you will be granted access to the trail—though you can trek in either direction, we chose to travel clockwise, turning left onto Bernal Heights Boulevard. This route travels around the perimeter of the park, offering wonderful views of the grassy hillside often adorned with wildflowers such as poppies and buttercups, as well as the impressive cityscape.

    Notice the painted rocks that line the path and you will eventually reach the trail’s end at Folsom Street. Here, wander along the sidewalk, merging back onto Bernal Heights Boulevard which will bring you back to the trailhead.
