The Presidio’s Marshall’s Beach is accessed as a downhill offshoot about halfway across the .07-mile Batteries to Bluffs Trail.
Twice encountered cyclists on this 475-step trail. One was carrying his bike up a steep flight. The second was riding alongside another flight, but then there were just the steps and he had to carry his bike up too.
Is this trail gonna become another trendy spot for mountain bikers? Seems way too much hassle because there are so many steps. Or maybe they just didn’t realize the trail had all those steps.
