Park on Oakdale Ave at Bayshore Blvd, cross at the light and find tiny Faith St, leading up to a footbridge ramp over US-101. Turn right on Holladay Ave, follow it till a sharp left bend, then descend on the stairs leading down to the freeway hairball. Follow the bike path east, cross Cesar Chavez (safely at Kansas St) and walk up Vermont St. Continue on 26th St, turn left on Wisconsin St, right on 25th, and right on Pennsylvania. Cross Cesar Chavez and find the bike/footpath opening on the other side, wedged between Freeway exits.

Walk down the enclosed bike/footpath, follow it along Islais Creek Channel and enter Tulare Park. Proceed through the Skatepark, go down the stairs and keep going despite the walkway ending. There is a gap in the metal fence, slip through it to enter 3rd St.

Go south on 3rd St till the end of the bridge, past Custer Ave, and then turn right on Phelps St.. Follow it for a mile and then turn right on Palou Ave, which leads back to Oakdale (stay right).
