Event comments

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.
