North Fort Scott is a small Presidio neighborhood just south of the bridge and one of several favorite Presidio ‘hoods. This is a short stroll through the area.
Remember more trees here years ago and would like to see the green fencing replaced by trees and other plantings. There are some plants at the east side but they don’t seem to be doing much yet: 1, 2, 3
Presidio Parkway is on the other side of the fence. I’d rather see the steady stream of traffic zipping by than it being blocked by a fence, but that's just me. Maybe the constant traffic is annoying to the residents.
Used to like the main stairway, the trees, and the view of the bridge to the north. There are sections of forest in the neighborhood (4, 5) and the old stairway is still there.
One thing I’d really appreciate, however, is a pedestrian skyway or at least a crosswalk at Lincoln so one can cross more easily to the sidewalk on the south side of the street where these homes are: 6, 7
This is a busy area, being so close to the bridge. Vehicles are turning AND going straight, but did not see a crosswalk in the immediate area.
About a block south of the first bridge bus stop (at the Visitor Center), the orange-railed sidewalk also ends: 8, 9, 10)
So once across the street, continued on Armistead to the upper level where the green fence is: 11
There's a walkway and 20 steps from the higher to lower level of the neighborhood: 12 thru 16
You can also access the neighborhood by crossing Lincoln near Crissy Field Overlook at Lendrum: 17
The park has signs indicating the names and numbers of each of their various neighborhoods.
The main stairway down to Hoffman St. from the lower part of the neighborhood has 52 steps. It starts down between two residences, at first a few steps at a time with no railings: 18 thru 28
Turned left on Hoffman for an easy walk back to the Visitor Center alongside the backyards of Lincoln homes: 29 thru 37
