Long description

For a unique look at the less-traveled Southern Presidio, start at the historic Main Post Visitors Center. Walk along the bay to (and under!) the Golden Gate Bridge. Look out over the vast Pacific Ocean and walk through Ft Scott, former coast artillery hdqtrs. Step into the heart of the Presidio and its historic army housing still in use. See the former Public Health Service Hospital, its anonymous cemetery, the 1895 Presidio Golf Course, the inspiring National Cemetery, eucalyptus-shrouded trails, Andy Goldsworthy's The Spire, and stunning views of Alcatraz and Angel Island. Return through another forest to the Main Post (11K). OR, take the time-honored route! Reach the bridge and walk across it, a classic San Francisco goal. Continue the stimulating southerly route after the bridge walk for a 15K or return to the Visitors Center via Crissy Field for 10K.
