PRESIDIO COASTAL TRAIL
Within the next few weeks, the National Park Service, Presidio Trust and Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy will begin improvements to the Presidio Coastal Trail and other projects in the corridor, such as the Batteries to Bluffs Trail repairs and installation of Lincoln Boulevard bike lanes south of Merchant Road. Habitat restoration on the Presidio Coastal bluffs will also occur at the same time, from invasive plant and tree removal to re-vegetation and reforestation efforts next winter. All of the project components are contained within the approved Presidio Trails and Bikeways Master Plan and Vegetation Master Plan.
You may have already noticed that the Langdon Court parking lot is closed to the public, as it will serve as the staging area through spring 2012. This is the first of several temporary area trail and road closures and detours that will be necessary, along with those related to work along Doyle Drive and at the Golden Gate Bridge Plaza.
The National Park Service, Presidio Trust and Parks Conservancy appreciate your patience and support through the project and look forward to celebrating the results with you when it’s complete. In the meantime, we will keep you informed as the project schedule develops. Feel free to contact me with any questions. Please also share this with others you think will be interested.
