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.
Location: Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail off Wedemeyer Street, just inside the 14th Avenue Gate, near PresidiGo Stop Stop #27a.
