Meeting point is the intersection of Parnassus and Medical Center Way. Â We will meet at 6:30 and depart promptly at 6:40.

This is a mildly strenuous 2-ish mile hike involving singletrack trail and a few stairs. You may wish to bring a snack and some water. Â The walk will not be wheelchair accessible.
Here is a google maps link.
The starting point is on the eastern edge of the University of California San Francisco medical school campus, on Parnassus Ave. Â We’ll meet on the corner of Parnassus and Medical Center Way. Â Medical Center Way is the small street which curves away behind the main UCSF campus.
The walk will exit Sutro Forest at 17th Street and Stanyan. Â If you drive, you may want to look for parking in that area.
There is UCSF parking in the Millberry Union Public Garage at 500 Parnassus Avenue. Â For the 2+ hours of the soundwalk, parking there will cost you $10.50.
By public transit:
Take the N streetcar to Hilway Ave, right at the Medical School (transfer from BART at any market street station) and walk one block up to Parnassus and Hilway. Â Walk a few hundred feet east.Â Alternately take Muni bus route 6-Parnassus which drops you off right at the corner of Parnassus and Hilway. Â Again, walk a few hundred feet east.
Update: Â The soundwalk was a great success. Â We will be posting a reportage.
