McLaren Park Trails Improvement Project

McLaren Park Natural Areas

Scope of Work

The Trails Improvement Program will realign the steep trail segment leading to this magnificent vista point overlooking Bernal Heights and downtown San Francisco, improving safety and access. Trailside vegetation will be restored to further reduce erosion and improve habitat values, and wayfinding signs will be installed.

Additional Improvements to McLaren Trails

In addition to the Trails Improvement Program we received a grant from the Federal Land and Water Conservation Fund for improvements to 3 trail entryways in McLaren Park: Campbell Ave, Visitacion Ave Fire Road, and Persia just east of the picnic area. This work will precede more extensive trail improvements at McLaren Park that are funded by the 2012 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond.
