Approaching Baker Beach from Gibson Road you pass the pine and cypress coastal grove. Protected sand dunes surround the beach. You observe the surf for several pictures and then walk along the beach toward Golden Gate Bridge. Do not be afraid to wet your feet :) ! At the north end surf meets rocks. You turn right and climb up the hill. Point Bonita is across the straight. Moving farther you could reach Bowley Street and return to Gibson Road, or continue your journey north, reach small Battery Crosby and ultimately the bridge.
