When was the last time your personal trainer rewarded a monster run with an ice-cold Bloody Mary? Oh, not recently? Well, then that’s reason enough to swap treadmill for trail this spring. And, by "trail," we mean 10 of the Bay Area’s best urban and not-so-urban hiking routes with finish lines at morning cocktails, fish and chips, and stacks of pancakes. Are you salivating yet?
We’ve rounded up the best and prettiest local treks to brunch, ranging from glute-burning, calorie-torching hikes-with-a-view outside the city to hangover-friendly strolls through San Francisco’s neighborhood parks. Because, the only thing better than a workout with a view is eating your face off at the end of it knowing you earned every bite.
