Park improvement projects and weather-related events sometimes result in temporary closures and detours of trails around the parks.
Presidio Coastal Trail Closed
The repair to the Presidio Coastal Trail segment, just north of the Pacific Overlook, begins August 19. Construction will last four months. Expect early morning full road closures (before 7 am) and intermittent one-lane closures. The Batteries to Bluffs Trail and Coastal Trail will remain open to hikers. Cyclists must use Lincoln Blvd.
Muir Beach Parking Lot Closure
Muir Beach is closed for construction and restoration from July 8–mid December 2013. Parking and restrooms will not be available at Muir Beach during these months. Pelican Inn and surrounding trails will remain open.
The existing parking lot is being 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.
Eagles Point Overlook Replacement Project
November 4, 2013 - Late December
The National Park Service and Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy will replace the existing overlook with a more subtle, setback viewpoint within the same vicinity along the trail.
Plans for this area include:
- Stabilizing the trail and improving its surface.
- Removing unsafe or diseased trees.
- Restoring the site with native vegetation.
- Installing new signage.
Construction will last approximately six weeks. A temporary trail closure and detour is required.
