San Francisco Presidio

  • Jan 4, 2014 · 8:00 AM

This information is from Lincoln...and we are so happy to have him!

8:00 AM meet at 11th and P park and ride for carpooling.

9:45 AM meet at the Crissy Field parking lot near the visitor's center. The address is 1199 E Beach  San Francisco, CA 94129. See the photo below for our meeting spot.



The hike/walk will be about 12 miles and will take around 5+ hours to complete. This is not a beginner hike. I would rate this as an intermediate level hike. There is a good amount of climbing involved 1900 feet.

Our route will go through or near the Letterman District, Lyon Street steps right past Diane Feinstein's home, Lover's Lane, Inspiration Point Overlook, a portion of the Bay Area Ridge Trail, El Polin Springs, the San Francisco National Cemetery Overlook, Rob Hill Campground, Baker Beach, Battery to Bluffs Trail, etc.

We will get to view or go past 6 different San Francisco neighborhoods: The Marina, Pacific Heights, Presidio Heights, Inner and Outer Richmond, and Seacliff.

There are several differing environments that we will walk though: Redwood, Eucalyptus, and Cyprus Groves, a dune habitat, a riparian habitat, bluffs at the ocean, and a tidal marsh. We will walk on some sidewalks (concrete and asphalt) and trail (soil, gravel, and sand).

See the following link for the map of the hike:

Please feel free to print yourself a copy!

Parking at Chrissy Field is free.

Be sure to bring water, lunch, and appropriate clothing for San Francisco weather.

Rain will cancel this walk/hike.

There is a 5 cent fun fee for this excursion. Not payable to me. Take the coin and toss it into Yoda's fountain at the Lucasfilms HQ!

    What a great day! And we couldn't have asked for better weather. If the weather hadn't been so nice, we might not have seen all those naked people. Thanks, Shannon and Lincoln.
