Note: This walk is 3.3 miles in length. Bring sunblock, a water bottle and a snack. Be sure to hit up a restroom before arriving!

For the second of three creek walks, Chris Sollars leads us from source to Bay, carrying the creek’s doppelgänger (a city block length of rope) along the path of San Francisco's Mission Creek.

Tracing the hidden waterway, the group stops at various landmarks along the way to gather ingredients for a lunch along the water. The walk concludes with a gathering on Mission Creek, where participants will be ferried to and from Water Shed, a handmade raft crafted from recycled materials. Participants can join the walk anywhere along the route.
