Park improvement projects and weather-related events sometimes result in temporary closures and detours of trails around the parks.
Trail by Pacific Overlook Closed
A segment of the Presidio Coastal Trail, just north of the Pacific Overlook, is closed.
Signage will alert motorists, bicyclists, hikers, and pedestrians to use extreme caution. All are encouraged to use alternate routes. The Batteries to Bluffs Trail and pathways through Fort Scott remain open.
The closure, due to storm damage, will remain in effect indefinitely. Trail engineers and NPS staff are reviewing the site and determining the repair plan.
Trail Closure at the Phleger Estate Due to Recent Storm Damage
Due to recent storm damage, the eastern end of the Miramontes Trail at the Phleger Estate in Golden Gate National Recreation Area will be closed to public use for repair from April 4, 2013, until further notice.
A 50-foot segment of the trail (approximately .25 miles northwest of the entrance to Phleger Estate from Huddart County Park at Richards Road) and adjacent hillside are eroding into West Union Creek creating unstable trail conditions, particularly for equestrians. Golden Gate National Recreation Area Trail Crew is working to make the trail safe and reopen to the public as soon as possible. It is estimated that the repair will take several weeks to complete.
Until this repair work is complete the area indicated by signage and fencing on the trail is closed to all visitors. For further information about this closure, please contact Planning at (415) 561-4930.
Muir Beach Parking Lot Closure
Muir Beach will be closed for construction and restoration from June–Nov. 2013. Parking and restrooms will not be available at Muir Beach during these months. Pelican Inn and surrounding trails will remain open. Signage will inform motorists, bikers, riders, and hikers of the closure.
The existing parking lot will be realigned to allow the Redwood Creek channel to be connected to its natural floodplain. Come back in late fall to enjoy the extended pedestrian bridge, the restored creek and wetlands, and the beach.
