 Acessibility Information

 
Many Presidio trails utilize former Army roads, sidewalks, or undesignated pathways that evolved informally over time without consideration for accessibility. The Trust is currently expanding the trail network to increase accessibility and provide a world-class and sustainable trail experience. Refer to individual trail descriptions, which are continually updated, for details on terrain.
 
All overlooks - and the pathways connecting accessible parking spaces and trails to the overlooks - are paved and relatively level with firm surfaces. The running slope of the entry trails is less than five percent, with a cross-slope of less than two percent. Benches with backs and arms and adjacent companion seating areas are provided.​
