Why locals recommend it
There are two trails I like to run on from Arguello Gate: the Upper Ecology Lovers’ Trail to the Presidio Promenade and back, which is three miles and pretty moderate. The Lower Ecology Lovers’ Trail to the Batteries to the Bluffs Trail and to the Bay Area Ridge Trail covers the majority of the Presidio and is roughly 6.5 miles. It is a bit more advanced. Along the Mountain Lake Park Trail, which is to the left of the Arguello Gate, there are parcourse stations that include a chin-up bar and a balance beam. Each section comes with instructions on the workout; there are 15 stations total along the Mountain Lake Park Trail.

Park
“What to say? One of the great parks of the United States. Just head down the hill to Kezar Stadium (at the very bottom of Willard Street) and you'll see the GGP right beyond it (walk around Kezar to the west to enter the park). You can also enter on Stanyan and Haight (and at many other points). Enjoy the Academy of Sciences, de Young Museum, Japanese Tea Garden, Stow Lake, the Conservatory of Flowers (great night time light shows in the summer and winter) and many, many other features of the park.”

“A wonderful place to go for a stroll, with some of the best views of the Golden Gate Bridge you will see. The Warming Hut at the end nearest the Bridge is a great place to get food and has a wonderful gift shop with unique items.”

“Rent a bike from a bike shop around Pier 39 and bike across the Golden Gate bridge. Or drive over to hike Hawk Hill in the Marin Headlands. The 3 mile hike will reward you with 360 views of San Francisco. ”
