Presidio Coastal Trail (Completed Spring 2012)

Muir Beach

Muir Beach 2012

We took a visit to Muir Beach to see how it has held up over the years.

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.

 

Horses on the Trails

The Dias Ridge Trail and the Muir Beach Trail have helped to create over five continuous miles of new trail for equestrians, mountain bikers, and hikers. The new trail connects to a larger network of equestrian and bike-friendly trails that continue to Tennessee Valley and throughout the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in Marin County.

Step Pools at Muir Beach after Winter Storm

This photograph shows one of the nine step pools built on the steepest section of the upper alluvial at Muir Beach. The photo was taken the day after the big storm event on December 8th. 

Phase II Completed at Muir Beach

Campbell Grading, Inc has officially completed the Phase II/2010 work at Muir Beach.

This phase included (all parts were design build):

Channel Design Progress at Muir Beach

The channel design in the upper alluvial fan is almost complete. Below are before/after photographs of the project site and a list of the constructed design features.

Coastal Trail Re-route + Channel Deisgn

The new Coastal Trail re-route will open this weekend!

The above image shows the Coastal Trail re-route, the installed culvert, and how the newly constructed step pools will align with the channel design to be built on the lower portion of the site (the other side of the culvert) in the next two weeks.

Muir Beach Step Pools Completed

Campbell Grading, Inc. has completed the construction of eight step pools that were built to stabilize a large erosion gully up-stream from the Redwood Creek alluvial fan. Approximately 350 tons of rock in a variety of sizes (1/2 ton, 1/4 ton, head-size, and 3-9" rock) was used to construct the step pools.
