The main walkway is on the eastern side of the bridge. It is open for the daylight hours and offers a breathtaking panoramic view of San Francisco Bay, the city skyline and Alcatraz island.
Remember, that the Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco, California and the United States. As such, it might get somewhat crowdy from time to time, so run with caution and watch cyclists and other pedestrians.
Crossing the bridge is approximately a 1.5 mile run (3 mile run when crossed in both directions). It is a short yet challenging run. The walkway is not flat and strong winds are frequent in this area.
