Bicyclists take in the view at Inspiration Point.

The Presidio contains over 25 miles of hiking trails, including the Golden Gate Promenade, Presidio Promenade, Coastal Trail, Ecology Trail, and portions of the Bay Area Ridge Trail, the Bay Trail, and the Anza National Historic Trail. Cyclists can explore the area on 14 miles of paved roads and along some unpaved parts of the Bay Area Ridge Trail. A world-class board sailing and kite surfing area borders Crissy Field, while fishing and crabbing opportunities abound from the nearby rocks and pier. The park also contains numerous sports facilities, including a golf course, bowling alley, tennis courts and athletic fields. Of special notice is the opportunity for photography of scenic views of the Bay Area and the Presidio's historic architecture.
