Tuesday, April 14: Bay Area Ridge Trail
Exploring the Presidio on its extensive hiking and biking trail network allows park-goers to experience scenic overlooks and vistas, make historical connections, and behold awe-inspiring artwork. Our April trails stewardship program will key in on some improvements to one of our signature hikes - the Bay Area Ridge Trail span near Andy Goldsworthy's famous art piece Spire (2006). The work will improve sight-lines, rehabilitating overgrown sections and helping to improve overall safety. A satisfying morning surrounded by fresh air and songbirds await you, as we continue the important work of Presidio trail stewardship!
