Lobos Valley Overlook
 
This overlook, located within the revitalized Public Health Service District, is named for Lobos Creek, the last free-flowing stream in San Francisco and the Presidio’s primary water source. This is a scenic spot to observe the southwestern reach of the park, where volunteers have nurtured native blossoms for more than a decade. On a clear day the view stretches all the way to the Pacific Ocean, framed on the south by the Richmond and Sea Cliff neighborhoods. Don’t be afraid to reach for a camera; Ansel Adams grew up in this area and frequently explored the valley. Bring a jacket as the winds off the ocean can be pretty powerful at this location.
 
Lobos Valley Overlook is located along the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail which takes hikers all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge. Descend into the valley for a closer look via the Lobos Creek Valley Trail.
 
Location: Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail off Wedemeyer Street, just inside the 14th Avenue Gate, near PresidiGo Stop Stop #27a.
