On Saturday, November 19, 2011, the East Side (Pedestrian Side) of the Golden Gate Bridge is once again open! Read the announcement here.
As of November 19, 2011 pedestrians are once again able to walk across the Golden Gate Bridge. This means pedestrians, runners and tourists can now transit completely across from San Francisco to Vista Point in Marin County on the East Side of the Bridge. See the limitations for what transpiration methods are allowed on the East Side here.
So for all of you who want to cross the Golden Gate Bridge by a means other than bike (Why? Who knows.) or for cyclotourists who find the West Side “scary” (Because all of us Bike Douches are scary), the East Side is now your playground!
