You are on the bridge. Here the way across the Golden Gate starts. Come close to the south tower. One step before turn right: you can see the bay panorama. Fort Baker is on another side of the straight, Angel Island, Alcatraz Island, View of Yerba Buena Island, Bay Bridge, Fishermans Wharf, and Fort Mason, downtown view with the Pyramid and dark Bank of America. You can see Presidio covered by trees and light-green stripe of Crissy field. Then you can observe Fort Point from above. Have you just been there?

Now you can observe the south tower. The middle and the top. Use [Esc] key to come back. This way you could move farther in our internet version. The pedestrian way goes around the tower. A plaque indicates that this is "The PG&E Tower".

You can see the bridge's special lighting devices, an emergency phone. At the middle cable is so low that one can touch it. If you have been careful with your tour levels, you can see here the lantern, and the great panorama of the Bay, islands, Mount Diablo, the city, and the both ends of the bridge. With the cable in front. It gives the views a nice frame.

You could see Lime Point lighthouse below the bridge, better view of Fort Baker, and a big cargo ship passing under the bridge. Bypass the north tower, you are entering Marin County. This is the north end. Here you could rest at a vista point or proceed to the hill with the great view of the bridge.
