Weekly Gem #52, A spiral marks the top

Published 12/19/2015

Location:  This 'hidden gem' is located in San Francisco, CA, on 16th Avenue, about 3 1/2 blocks south of Golden Gate Park (see the Clue Me! Map).  At this point, facing a hill that is too steep even for San Francisco drivers, 16th veers right to become Lawton Street.  This is a good place for walking though. And when you see the spiral, you need to bear left (and down) where 16th veers right.

At that point the hidden gem lies before you, and also materializes behind you as follow the steps down through the hidden garden.


Here's the hidden gem entry from our Clue Me! map.
