2nd Edition of the Walkers Map of San Francisco published!

May 25, 2012
2nd edition, 2012

The 2nd edition cover shows the Batteries to Bluffs Trail above North Baker Beach, with the Golden Gate Bridge beyond.

As we start into summer, we’ve published a 2nd edition of our wildly popular Walker’s Map of San Francisco.

Changes for 2012 are few but useful. We added the Lower Historic Trail on Mt. Sutro, the Coastal Trail and overlooks on the west edge of the Presdio, and new trailheads opening soon in the Marin Headlands. We also added the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail route from Lake Merced to the Bridge, and little details like the restored wetlands at El Polin Spring.

For east of navigating, we updated MUNI routes and demolished the old Doyle Drive (don’t read this map while driving the new detour!).¬†We also added more street names and stairways, and corrected a bunch of little items submitted by sharp-eyed explorers.

The new map is working its way into stores; you can find it in late May 2012 at Christopher’s Books (18th and Missouri), Thidwicks Books (Clement at 12th Ave), Dog-Eared/ Alleycat/ Red Hill/ Phoenix; Modern Times (24th and Alabama-ish) Green Arcade (Market at 12th) and Cliff’s Variety (18th and Castro). And of course direct from Pease Press. More locations soon.

We shifted the cover to the lower left corner so the two halves of the map fit together as a big wall map (roughly 48 x 34 inches!). We’ve got a limited number of single-sided, unfolded maps you can mount as wall maps (direct from Pease Press only).
