Park improvement projects and weather-related events sometimes result in temporary closures and detours of trails around the parks. 


Fort Point Overlook and Bay Trail Construction Project

Construction of the Battery East Bay Trail on the southeast side of the Golden Gate Bridge will begin January 6, 2014 and last through July. A bike/pedestrian detour through the Golden Gate Bridge Plaza will be in place. The project will widen the trail for bicyclist and pedestrian safety and create an accessible viewing area overlooking Fort Point and the Golden Gate Bridge.

This project is part of a comprehensive trail improvement program made possible by a generous challenge grant from the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund, federal grants, and thanks to contributions made by donors to the Presidio Trails program and Parks Conservancy members.

Fort Baker/Satterlee Road Improvements Project

Construction on Satterlee Road along the southeast edge of Horseshoe Cove will begin in June and will last through March. This project will widen and upgrade the existing road surface while maintaining the historic character of this park site.

Plans for this area include:

  • Realignment of road to create safe two-way traffic flow to and from Cavallo Point.
  • Improved access for emergency vehicles and bicycles.
  • New pathway and boardwalk to enhance pedestrian access around Travis Sailing Center, Cavallo Point, and Battery Yates.
  • Organized, more efficient parking.

Road and trail closure will be in effect during this project. A detour will be in place for vehicles, bikes, and pedestrians.
