Lobos Creek Valley Trail


Length:​ ​0.8 miles (1.3 kilometers)
​Use Type: ​pedestrians only; no dogs permitted
​Difficulty: ​easy
Discover San Francisco’s last free-flowing stream on the Lobos Creek Valley Trail. Follow a boardwalk as it meanders through a rare restored dune habitat adjacent to the Presidio’s main water source. Because of the unique geography of the area, there are several rare species native to the Presidio found here including the San Francisco Wallflower and San Francisco Lessingia. The flora and fauna of Lobos Creek Valley attracted famous American photographer and environmentalist Ansel Adams, who grew up nearby and often explored the valley. The valley is also a terrific place to spot birds and butterflies, drawn to the native blossoms.
