Presidio Coastal Trail (Completed Spring 2012)

El Polin Springs Watershed & Habitat Improvement Project Begins

El Polin Springs is a very special place, located within the Presidio of San Francisco, it is a part of the park's largest watershed, Tennessee Hollow. The project site is rich with natural and archeological elements, including numerous bird species that utilize the fresh water springs and archeological remains of Juana Briones and her family's homesteaded.

The project includes demolishing all the asphalt roads, narrowing and replacing the roads with crushed rock trails, a boardwalk, and a vehicular turnaround. There will also be a picnic area, native revegetation, and a series of seasonal wetland ponds that daylight the abundant spring flows that move through the site.
