Stay informed on history, the latest updates, news, and local San Francisco culture from the Inn at the Presidio.
From day long hikes to strolls along the grounds there are plenty of trails for different levels of hikers to enjoy in the Presidio of San Francisco.
Long before centuries of military activity and construction projects covered up the area known as The Tennesse Hollow Watershed, it was home to a system where three creeks and freshwater springs came together to create a natural bird habitat and primary freshwater source for the marsh at Crissy Field.
Here at the Inn, we regularly get asked about the trails in the Presidio that we might recommend as the best hikes in the area. This is always such a tricky question to answer because there are so many great trails and they all offer something unique to the hiker. Based on our own research however, along with the feedback of our guests we have compiled a list of our favorites and rated them from easy to more difficult.
