    Route Description for Presidio Promenade Trail

    The Presidio Promenade Trail is a wonderful adventure in the Golden City that boasts wonderful views of the Golden Gate Bridge along the way. Meander through magical forestlands, past historic landmarks, and flowering meadows. Though well-revered, this route is poorly signposted, so be sure to download the trail GPS to mitigate getting lost. Come prepared to share the trail, though mornings seem to boast a more tranquil experience.

    Embark on your journey along the Presidio Promenade Trail from the parking lot off Ruger Street. Following the trail GPS, you will be led through the neighborhood before merging onto Lovers’ Lane. At the end of the route, turn right to be diverted onto the Mountain Lake Trail and over Arguello Blvd. Using the trail GPS, you will pass Andy Goldsworthy’s Spire and over to the National Cemetery Overlook. At this point, the path will leave the wilderness and meander through the local neighborhood.

    Explore the charming neighborhood, stopping to grab a coffee along the way. Here there are many turns and intersections, so use the GPS. Ultimately you will be delivered back to the parking lot, marking the end of your adventure.
