This hike trends gently downhill as you head from the Presidio’s Broadway Gate to Baker Beach. In a short distance, you encounter some interesting changes in scenery. For the ?rst 0.8 mile, you ?nd yourself within the nature of the Presidio but on the edge of ritzy Paci?c Heights. On the way, you’ll walk by Andy Goldsworthy’s Wood Line plus Lovers’ Lane, a centuries-old footpath. Next, you hike alongside the Presidio Golf Course to reach Mountain Lake, passing golfers, runners, and dog walkers.
