Bay Area Ridge Trail (San Francisco Presidio) Description

This 2.5-mile trail segment through San Francisco's Presidio is part of 340-mile network of multi-use trails collectively known as the Bay Area Ridge Trail that climb Bay Area mountain ridges and pass by many of the most scenic points in the region. Starting from the Arguello Gate, the trail winds around the northern end of the Presidio Golf Course, passes by the Rob Hill Campground, three scenic overlooks, and numerous points of interest, until it merges with the San Juan Bautista National Historic Trail, which heads north to the Golden Gate Bridge.

The Presidio has a long and rich history of military service. Its life as a military base ended in 1994. Since then, the Presidio has transformed from “post to park” through the collaborative support of The Presidio Trust, Golden Gate Conservancy, and National Park Service, rehabilitating buildings, restoring habitat, and creating parks, trails and scenic overlooks.

Parking and Trail Access

A parking lot is available at the southern end of the trail at Arguello Gate entrance to the Presidio. Restrooms are also available at the this end of the trail at the Presidio Golf Course Clubhouse.

For those taking public transportation, San Francisco's MUNI transit system has two bus stops in the Presidio. There are also Presidio GO Downtown and Around the Park shuttles to help you travel through the park.
