This is more of a historic walk than a hike.

It's a little hard to figure out exactly where in the presidio this trail is, use the map carefully and it will be great! Expect some steep uphill, but overall pretty easy and relaxing. A good change of scenery and my favorite - view of the Golden Gate Bridge.

This trailer is not well marked but it's quite beautiful when you're in the woods it is powerful seeing the national cemetery

Nice, easy hike in a great urban environment. Thank you to the Presidio Trust for saving this gem from commercial development.

Great views and amazing trail. You have free busses every 30 min, in case you get tired.

We actually started at the Crissy Field Center, crossed the street onto Baker, walked past the Palace of Fine Arts, then crossed Gorgas Ave, through Lucas Park in the Presidio. We hiked up to Lover's Lane Trail, turned right on Mountain Lake Trail, turned right on Ecology Trail around El Polin Springs and the Grassland Restoration. We continued on Ecology Trail to the left then out and back to Inspiration Point. From Inspiration Point we turned right on the Ridge Trail all the way to Immigrant Point overview, then continued on to Batteries to Bluff Trail to the Golden Gate Bridge overlook (toll Plaza), then down the stairs to Fort Point, then took the Gate Promenade back to the East Beach and the starting point. Total distance was 7 miles. It was a fun hike.

An escape from the city without actually leaving.

A gem! Be sure to stop in at the Legion of Honor museum and catch the awesome collection of Rodin sculpture, or even a musical act in the theater in the basement.

The Presidio is full of trails that lead you on an adventure through many different settings. You'll go through a forest, a cemetery, a military base, and the coast.
I went to the tourist information center and got a great map of all the trails. I ended up taking the intermediate trail, over 6 miles around the park and coast. I think it was labeled as intermediate mostly due to the length.
Make sure to check out the Spire, Lover's Lane, the cemetery overlook, immigrant overlook, Marshall beach, and if you're up for it the Lyon st steps.
You can spend a whole day here easily!

The scenery and history were amazing, but this walk was special to me since I served in the Army when several people I knew were stationed here for language school. What a place to go to school! But I guess getting having to get drafted to get there put a damper on the experience for some. We supplemented the walk with a drive. The hills are surprisingly wearing.
