This closure was from last rainy season and is at April Creek, about a mile in from the trailhead. And here it is nearly rainy season again. I have no idea what it looks like these days. Is this trail to stay permanently closed to hikers? Shame cuz it’s such a striking beauty, long and winding up to the summit on the west side of the mountain. One of my favorite trails. Wish they could build a sturdy footbridge here so heavy rains wouldn’t flood the trail.
I therefore did the Summit Loop north. After sitting for a few moments admiring the view on a log beneath the towers up here, descended the same way I came up (third pic, down from the summit). On the way down, the Summit Loop connects with the Dairy Ravine Trail, then the Dairy Ravine connects with the Eucalyptus Loop Trail.
Beautiful view today and quite warm. The fog was approaching from the west/ocean, but slowly, and just starting to cover the Lake Merced area when I was up there.
