***A section of the Coastal Trail just north of the Pacific Overlook is closed indefinitely due to storm damage. A repair plan is now being created. Please use caution and follow detour signage. Periodic updates will be posted on the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy website.***
The California Coastal Trail is a 1,200 mile route tracing the iconic Pacific coastline from Mexico to Oregon. The Presidio segment connects Baker Beach to the Golden Gate Bridge through the wild coastal bluffs. Be sure to take enough time to explore everything the Baker Beach area has to offer, from the sandy beach to idyllic picnic sites to Battery Chamberlain’s “disappearing gun.” Visitors can immerse themselves in the environment of the bluffs by searching the skies for hawks and discovering native blossoms. At its northern end, the trail continues across the Golden Gate Bridge to the Marin Headlands, and also connects to the Bay Trail, which provides access to Fort Point and Crissy Field. At the southern end, the trail connects to the 25th Avenue Gate and the Richmond District of San Francisco.
This information will be updated and expanded for all trails as upgrades are completed and the data is gathered.
