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

Mori Point Trail System Accessibility Improvements

Trail work along the Old Mori Trail will begin in Mid-August and will last through October. This project will resurface the trail, improve drainage, and reduce erosion to meet outdoor accessibility guidelines.

Work will be done in two phases to minimize disruption to park users. Temporary trail closures and detours will be in place for your safety. Work will be confined to the hours of 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday through Thursday. Each trail segment will remain closed until that phase is complete. Parking and restroom facilities will remain open throughout construction.

Point Lobos Pipeline Removal

The National Park Service is removing 170 feet of a former underground fuel pipeline and associated contaminated soil near the Sutro Baths in Lands End. The project is anticipated to occur between July 21 and August 31, 2014. During this period, the Sutro Ruins Trail and a portion of the Upper Sutro Baths Trail will be closed. Traffic controllers will be present at the bottom of the steps to the Merrie Way parking lot to allow for access to the Baths. A flagger will also be present on Point Lobos Avenue to accommodate pedestrians crossing on the sidewalk.

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 August. 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 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.
