We are very excited to have begun construction on the Presidio Coastal Trail and the Golden Gate Overlook. The Golden Gate Overlook is being constructed for the celebration of the Golden Gate Bridge's 75th Anniversary in 2012! We are scheduled to complete the Overlook and Trail in April 2012.


Presidio's Mountain Lake Trail Featured in the San Francisco Chronicle

Our most recently completed project, Mountain Lake Trail West in the Presidio, was featured in an SF Chronicle article yesterday. The photo above shows the recently completed Merchant Marine Cemetery Vista in April 2011 (referred to in the article as Hospital Cemetery Vista).

Composting Toilet Installation

At El Polin we are installing a Clivus Multrum composting toilet. The toilet will be completely self-contained with a solar-panel powered fan and quarterly maintenance to remove the composted materials.

This container where the magic happens. Installed it sits 4-5' underground and sits directly under the new structure.

Merchant Marine Cemetery Vista Memorial

The Merchant Marine Cemetery Vista Memorial is now mostly completed. The memorial was designed by Michael Lamb, landscape architect with the Presidio Trust. It creates a reflective space overlooking the restored sand dunes, which sit on top of the historic site of the Merchant Marine Cemetary. See below for photos of the construction process.

Batteries to Bluffs Trail Inspires Art and Exercise

Designs in the sand at Marshall Beach mimic the patterns of the waves.

With over 500 steps in 3,600 feet of trail, Batteries to Bluffs (completed in 2007) is a beautiful place to strengthen your legs and heart muscles.

Dias Ridge and Muir Beach Horseback Ride

On February 9, 2011, Barth and his horse Murphy rode from Dias Ridge across Highway One, up and over Coyote Ridge, and back down the Coastal Trail to Muir Beach (approximately an 8.5 mile loop). This was the perfect opportunity to examine the conditions of both trails after the late 2010 winter rain storms.
