Begin at the West Bluff Picnic Area / Warming Hut and hike East along the main path (Golden Gate Promenade) or paths that run parallel to it. Continue along Golden Gate Promenade or meander past some of the old, white buildings (like the Marine Sanctuary Visitor Center). Enjoy sights and smells of tidal marsh, beach, and grasses along the way. At the East Beach Picnic Area, take one of the many paths South, to the paved path on the South side of the field, along Mason Street. Continue along the paved path West, stopping at the Crissy Field Center (across Mason Street, from the center of the marsh) if you like. Continue West until you reach the West Bluff Picnic Area.
