Pine Lake Park, in western San Francisco and contiguous with Stern Grove, is an elongated valley with steep, forested slopes. Pine Lake is one of the few remaining natural lakes in San Francisco, and is fed by the same aquifer as Lake Merced. The willow, tule, and other wetland plants that ring the lake provide habitat for a variety for resident and migratory bird species. A trail encircles the lake, providing opportunities for viewing birds, and connects to the larger trail network that winds through Stern Grove, including a segment of the Bay Area Ridge Trail.
