This was actually my first time walking Wood Line in its entirety since its completion. The last time was a day or two before its official opening; a couple of Trail Closed signs were still in place alongside and a few workers at the south end. Hope he continues to create art/nature works in the park.
Up to the Blvd. at the north end of Wood Line, crossed to walk behind the homes in the Sumner Loop ‘hood. Downhill and across MacArthur to the Lovers’ Lane’s footbridge where there’s an unmarked trail I frequently take just below the vehicle street.
Up the short stairway to the Main Post area, past Pershing Hall (soon to become a small hotel). Continued west, admiring the newly planted Main Post lawn, and up the Post Chapel stairway (first photo).
A well-defined trail here meanders uphill from the south side of the chapel through the forest to the Cemetery Overlook. This trail’s been a favorite of mine for years, before the Overlook existed.
At the Overlook a wood stairway (98 or so steps – second foto) winds to the west down to the Park Trail (third pic) where a couple of Presidio Habitats exhibits beg to stay permanently in the park.
The Park Trail continues alongside the golf course, but hikers won’t be approached by a golfer complaining that they aren’t supposed to walk there. This has happened to me in another part of the Presidio golf course and at the Lincoln Park course (Lands End).
Passing the foot of the new dunes boardwalk stairway below the Wyman Ave. residences and out at 14th Ave. near Park Presidio.
