The ferry building is PACKED with people. You can barely walk through it.
If you want a fun hill with a payoff, climb to to parking lot at the Coit Tower. Not the toughest hill in SF, but close to the Embarcadero.
I suggest riding the Embarcadero, from under the bay bridge to the Golden Gate, then across to the Marin headlands, and down into Sausalito... just once. Its a typical tourist's route, but its not a poor one. I've wanted to the the west-side coastline, too.
If you're near San Bruno, San Bruno Mtn is climbable fixed from the west side, but the east side is pretty brutal.
