Event Details

Come join #LoneScoutJason on his quest to earn all BSA Awards in California before he ranks up to Eagle.

Scouts (11-18 years old), regardless of rank or gender, from any BSA council or troop are welcome to join in the hike - as a 15+ mile loop starting at the Marin County Vista Point (essentially going in reverse of the route described below and crossing the Golden Gate Bridge twice) - or as a 8-mile one way trek starting at the Presidio Museum.

====================================================

BSA Presidio Historic Trail Route (8-mile one way) for BETA Scouts.

Begin at Presidio Museum (originally an Army Hospital), and proceed southwest on Funston Avenue. Turn right and head northwest on Moraga Avenue, passing the Officers Club.

Turn right at the Flag Pole, observing the old cannons and the original Spanish Presidio Fort. Visit the Visitors Center on the Main Parade Ground (restrooms and interesting exhibits here).

Turn left on Sheridan Avenue, proceed west to Lincoln Blvd. Stop at San Francisco National Cemetery for prayer or meditation and acknowledgement of deceased veterans serving to our country.

Continue west on Lincoln Blvd., turn right on Crissy Field Avenue. Continue west on Crissy Field Avenue, underneath Doyle Drive Freeway, until it rejoins Lincoln Blvd.

Continue north on Lincoln Blvd., then turn right to hike north on Long Avenue and Marine Drive following the bay coast into Fort Point National Historic Site.

After visiting Fort Point (interesting exhibits and films here, and great views underneath the Golden Gate Bridge), hike south up to the Golden Gate Bridge Visitors Center.

Continue west, then southwest on Coastal Trail past the old cannon batteries on the western side of the Presidio. Hike south until you reach Battery Chamberlain.

Return from Battery Chamberlain hiking north on Coastal Trail to Lincoln Blvd.

Cross over Lincoln Blvd. and see West Coast World War II memorial.

Continue north until trail on right enters Fort Winfield Scott.

Continue to the right on Ralston Avenue, with the option of entering Fort Winfield Scott fields, then continue north on Ralston Avenue as it loops around Fort Winfield Scott.

Turn left on Storey Avenue, then turn right and continue northeast on Lincoln Avenue.

After going underneath U.S. 101 on Lincoln Avenue, turn left to hike toward Golden Gate Bridge Visitor Center.

After stopping for restrooms and Visitor Center, hike 2.2 miles across Golden Gate Bridge.

Scouts may be picked up by automobile at Marin County Vista Point at the north end of the bridge (eastern side of U.S. 101 freeway, free direction for automobiles traveling from San Francisco into Marin County).
