Things to do in San Francisco - Batteries to Bluffs Trail

Things to do in San Francisco - Batteries to Bluffs Trail. This trail in the Presidio stretches between the Golden Gate Bridge area and Baker Beach. This #UrbanTrekUSATips courtesy of Urban Trek USA, a SMALL GROUP & TOP RATED San Francisco walking tour.

 The Batteries to Bluffs Trail is a trail that goes up and down the hillside (bluffs). Therefore, you will have to be quite fit to do this trail or you will have to keep resting especially on the way up. On a clear day, you will have a great view of the Golden Gate, Pacific Ocean, Golden Gate Bridge and the Marin Headlands. Most of the year, it will be windier and colder in this area so dress accordingly. Click this link for more information about the Batteries to Bluffs Trail.

This self-guided instructions for the Batteries to Bluffs Trail can be done in conjunction with the instructions for the Lands End Trail and then hike all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge. If you do the Lands End Trail first (see the Mar. 5, 2018 post), you will have to do the Batteries to Bluffs Trail instructions backwards because the Batteries to Bluffs Trail instructions starts from the Golden Gate Bridge area. If you do the Batteries to Bluffs Trail instructions first then you will have to do the Land End Trail instructions backwards.

Note: If I were to do both trails, I would start with the Lands End Trail and then after Baker Beach hike the Batteries to Bluffs trail and then walk to the Golden Gate Bridge. If you follow this suggestion, I also recommend that you get to the Golden Gate Bridge no later than 2:00 pm so you can take nicer pictures because of where the sun is positioned. Depending on how fast you hike and how long you want to linger at certain spots, I think you will have to start from the Lands End Lookout by 12:00 pm because according to Google Maps, it will take most people 1 hour and 13 minutes to walk approximately 3.4 miles from the Lands End Lookout to the Golden Gate Bridge.
