Beach Access

Permanent boardwalks provide year-round beach access at Baker Beach and Stinson Beach.

Beach mats are installed on Rodeo Beach, and Crissy Field East Beach from April 1 through November 15. Beach mats provide a firm and stable surface on top of the sand. Due to the dynamic coastal environment the slopes of mats may be steep at times. Please proceed with caution.


Beach Wheelchairs

Beach Wheelchairs are available upon request on-site at Stinson Beach, Muir Beach, Rodeo Beach, Baker Beach and Crissy Field. If you would like to use a beach wheelchair at other sites within Golden Gate National Recreation Area, you may make arrangements to pick up a chair at our headquarters building in Fort Mason, San Francisco Monday - Friday between 8:30am - 4:00pm.

Please provide at least 5 days advanced notice. We will try our best to accommodate day of requests; however, we cannot make any guarantees that the staff or chair itself will be available. Please e-mail us to make arrangements.
