Inspiration Point Overlook
 
No trip to the Presidio is complete without a stop at Inspiration Point Overlook. Here visitors can see San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz, and Angel Island. Perched above Tennessee Hollow, the park’s largest watershed, this vantage offers views of rare serpentine grasslands, historic homes, and eucalyptus canopies. The view on a clear day is truly something to savor.
 
Take the nearby stairs to the Ecology Trail for a closer look at the watershed, and to access spur trails to El Polín Spring and Julius Kahn Playground. Alternatively, cross Arguello Boulevard and take the Bay Area Ridge Trail to explore the Presidio’s forest and Andy Goldsworthy’s Spire.
 
Inspiration Point Overlook was made possible by a gift from the James R. Harvey Presidio Restoration Fund.
 
Location: Arguello Boulevard, just inside the Arguello Gate, PresidiGo Shuttle Stop #33
