For a quintessential west coast view of the Pacific Ocean, from Land's End to the Golden Gate Bridge, head to the Pacific Overlook. This is a popular stop, as it is easily accessible off many hiking trails, including the Batteries to Bluffs Trail. Rustic wooden benches made from reclaimed Presidio Monterey cypress trees allow for a moment of rest. Learn more here.
Many of the park's hiking trails connect directly to one or more of these overlooks. Alternatively, the PresidiGo Shuttle can bring you to many of these stops as well. PresidiGo is a convenient and free option for getting around the park. PresidiGo also offers transportation from downtown, and the Presidio is easily accessible via San Francisco's Muni system.
