Take a look at what’s down the road once you’re a Zipster.

I run a company called Urban Hiker SF and my new project is a hiking guidebook for San Francisco. For my book, I need to explore all of San Francisco's trails near and far. I don't have a car, so I use Zipcar to get anywhere from the Presidio to Lands End to Fort Funston. Zipcar helps me get from the the city to trails in no time flat. It's convenient, fast, and gets me where I need to be.
