Tuesday, April 8: Park Trail and Bay Area Ridge Trail
This month the Trails Stewards will beautify two signature hiking
trails: the Park Trail, which is the major north-south connector trail in the
Presidio system, and the Bay Area Ridge Trail, which is part of a 550-mile loop
tracing the highest points around San Francisco Bay, including the upper
ridgeline of the Presidio. Our work will focus on clearing overgrown vegetation
from around the trails and raking up and removing green waste. A brief
presentation at the start of our program will explain more about the
significance of our work in relation to a forthcoming outdoor art exhibition.
