5. Bernal Heights Park – take a hike up!

Bernal Hill is a perfect place for you if you want to enjoy a “breathtaking view of the San Francisco Bay, Golden Gate Bridge, downtown, San Bruno Mountain, and the hills of the East Bay.” I recommend this place for those who want to exercise while enjoying the beauty of wildlife.
