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

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 closures will be in effect during this project. Pedestrian access to Cavallo Point, Satterlee Road and Battery Yates will be available during non-construction hours after 5:30pm on weekdays and all day on weekends.
