Do: Dog-Friendly Hiking in the Presidio Neither you nor your four-legged best friend will want to miss the beautiful, 1,491-acre Presidio National Park, with 11 miles of hiking trails, diverse wildlife and scenic views. Don't miss the 3.5-mile Golden Gate Promenade, which runs along Crissy Field and has beach access (where you can let your dog run off the leash), views of the Golden Gate Bridge, a marine sanctuary visitor's center and saltwater marshes. Stay: Laurel Inn The enthusiastically pet-friendly Laurel Inn is just five blocks from the Presidio. When you and your dog return after a long day, you can enjoy a complimentary glass of wine at the adjacent lounge, and your pet can gnaw on a free chew toy or treat. A dog bed, water bowl and food bowl are also provided free of charge.
