3rd Annual PCNC Discovery Walk in San Francisco Presidio
Take a break from football to get outside for a leisurely 6-mile circuit to see some of the recent changes in the San Francisco Presidio.

Under the guidance of the National Park Service and the Presidio Trust, the San Francisco Presidio continues to be transformed from its military origins into its current role as a wonderful recreational and cultural resource. This year's "discovery walk" will be an opportunity to see some of the changes that have taken place in the past year, as well as some things that have remained the same for a long time.

PCNC sponsored similar walks in August 2008 and September 2009, so Presidio walks are gradually becoming an annual tradition.

Depending on the weather and the energy level of the group, this year's tour will walk through the San Francisco National Cemetery, then pass by a few of the outdoor art installations that are included in the current Presidio Habitats exhibition. We will also see the newly reopened Rob Hill Campground, walk along Baker Beach and Battery Chamberlain (1904), hike along the Lobos Creek Valley Trail through newly restored dune habitat, pass by the former Public Health Service Hospital that is currently being restored and converted into a luxury apartment complex, and take a look at Andy Goldsworthy's Spire, a 90-foot sculpture of cypress tree trunks that was created in October 2008.

We will meet in front of the Presidio Visitor Center at the upper end of the Main Post. Please try to arrive by 10 a.m. in order to allow time for a short visit to the Visitor Center. (The Visitor Center's address is 50 Moraga Ave, near Arguello Blvd, directly across from a huge parking lot.) We will leave the Visitor Center at 10:30 and return no later than 4 p.m.

For driving directions to the Visitor Center from any conceivable direction, see

Bring water, lunch, and windbreaker. Heavy rain cancels the outing; light drizzle will shorten the route.
 
RSVP is very helpful, but it is not required. Fill in your name and e-mail address. You can leave the "organization" space blank.
