Why locals recommend it
There are two trails I like to run on from Arguello Gate: the Upper Ecology Lovers’ Trail to the Presidio Promenade and back, which is three miles and pretty moderate. The Lower Ecology Lovers’ Trail to the Batteries to the Bluffs Trail and to the Bay Area Ridge Trail covers the majority of the Presidio and is roughly 6.5 miles. It is a bit more advanced. Along the Mountain Lake Park Trail, which is to the left of the Arguello Gate, there are parcourse stations that include a chin-up bar and a balance beam. Each section comes with instructions on the workout; there are 15 stations total along the Mountain Lake Park Trail.
Tips from locals
Great park. Many small parks within it include the Walt Disney Family Museum
The Presidio, a 1,500-acre park on a former military post, is a major outdoor recreation hub. It has forested areas, miles of trails, a golf course and scenic overlooks. Other highlights include grassy Crissy Field with Golden Gate Bridge views, Civil War–era Fort Point and sandy Baker Beach…
The coolest neighborhood that no one goes to! It has spectacular views of the bay, great museums, and a lot of early San Francisco history.
