I run outdoors and am trying to stay off streets and sidewalks because I need to be gentle on my joints. So far my favorite places to go are Crissy Field (on the gravel path along the water's edge) and the soccer fields at Crocker Amazon Park. Both of these places are what I'm looking for: flat, unpaved, safe, and easy to get to but I'm bored and would like some other options. I'm going to check out the polo field at Golden Gate Park today but what are some other places to try? Are tracks at local high schools available to the public? I'm usually driving so parking is a benefit but anything flat and unpaved (as in not asphalt or concrete) would be good. Turf, spongy tracks, paths and other softer surfaces are what I'm after.
