This hike, starting from the bridge bus stop, was to check out an area not visited in a while because of construction detours. Stopped to admire the Olds and News in the park, like the old stable buildings with the new bridge approach above and new tunnel in the distance (first two pics).
From the Battery East Trail, a short trail between two vehicle streets will take you out to the Presidio Promenade (third foto). The trail (fourth pic) is mostly covered with small rocks and has to be rough on bicycle wheels. So most of them ride above or below. I call this the "Wild Rose Trail."
From here to the Crissy Field Overlook. Not in the mood for downhill, crossed the wooden footbridge near the stables. Wanted to head uphill on the Park Trail (fifth pic) but looking for a shortcut this time instead of the longer wind-around. Walked next to the stables (awwww: the horses!) and up to the next street layer. Continued, including offtrail a bit, but easy to see where I was going and a short distance to the part of the Park Trail I was heading for.
Up the 98 curvy wood Cemetery Overlook steps (last three pics) from the Park Trail, then out the Overlook area's south end (residences on one side). Soon you'll see a trail marker for the Bay Area Ridge Trail. Cross the street and go up. The road will be below you and the east edge of the golf course to the right (but hidden by trees) as the trail winds past the Spire sculpture. This delightful trail emerges at the golf course buildings and restaurant near the Arguello Gate.
