Presidio Trail Stewards

​Help the Presidio Trust Trail Crew maintain and enhance park trails and pathways. Stewardship helps maintain a world-class trail system for the community to enjoy today and in the years to come.


Second Tuesdays, 10 am to 1 pm

Meeting Location 
Meet at 10 am at the Inspiration Point Overlook. Volunteers will be transported by van to project sites.


Project Site
Tuesday, February 9: Mountain Lake Trail 
Help construct trail features that will arrest erosion along the Mountain Lake Trail near Julius Kahn Playground. Using trail surface material, we will construct reverse grades which act as a physical barrier to slow down and redirect running water off of the trail. This project is crucial to keeping the trail surface intact, passable and devoid of ruts.
