Summary:
There are tons of trails in Golden Gate Park, some, many locals don't even know about. Some reviews focus on the Ocean Beach end, but there are some nice trails at the other end of the park. Since there are more people walking around and more cars, I don't see a lot of people biking around there. But, if you do, there are some pretty technical trails. The trails aren't that long though as you would pop out on a paved walk way, but you just keep going and the trail will continue on the other side. Its decent for people who live in SF that don't want to travel too far to ride.

Summary:
Good trial network for being in a major urban area. Nothing too technical, but fast and fun enough to keep experienced riders entertained.
This is a major urban park, and can be very active, and crowded at times. Definitely use discretion around blind corners, etc.

I'd have to say the best use of these trails is for the "after work with a few buddies" ride. Ususally meet at my place, mount lights and hit the park for a fast loop or two. End the ride at the Park Chalet, and have a beer and some food, then ride home.

I lived across the street (27th & Fulton) for two years, so this was a great riding resource to have in the city! And the park is almost entirely surrounded by bike shops if you should happen to have "a spot of bother" in your ride.

If you want to get creative, ride GGP to the beach. Head north up to Land's End. Dodge some golfers, wiggle yer way through the neighborhood, and up to the Golden Gate Bridge. Cross over to the Marin Headlands, then ride out to Bolinas/Fairfax. Connect the trails up to Mt.Tam, then up and over into Mill Valley. Take the roads, and bike paths back through town to the bridge. Makes for a good all day ride, at a moderate pace (might want to bring maps & lights). Definitely stop at Joe's Tacos, in Mill Valley, for some good grub and cold one! And you can always stop at Cafe Trieste, in Sausalito, for a little caffine and some baked goodies.

Recommended Route:
Fulton and Stanyon entrance is probably easiest way to start, but enter from anywhere and go ride!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
GGP to Headlands to Bolinas/Fairfax to Mt. Tam to Mill Valley. Back to city via roads and bike paths.

Summary:
I haven't found this park to be very fun. It's a conveinent place for people living in the area. But if you want some real exciting stuff, I think this is not the place to go.

Summary:
a lot of nice trails. Some single track if you can find it hidden along Fulton and Lincoln. Park your car on Lincoln and Ocean Beach.

Recommended Route:
Take the path along Lincoln. This is wide enough for the warm-up. Turns into single track and comes out on 19th Avenue.Turn left going to JFK to the trails along Fulton. Nice climbs and some downhill and jumps if you can find it. Watch out for the roots. Excellent ride for the beginner to the experienced wanting a nice ride not far away from home.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
San Bruno Mountain (2.5 miles loop. Skeggs. Mt. Tam. Wilder Ranch in Santa Cruz
