Connecting Mt. Sutro to Golden Gate Park

Jan 24th, 2019

Mt Sutro to the Phil Arnold Trail in Golden Gate Park is scheduled to open in April 2020!

What: This spring, the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department and Ridge Trail will dedicate the next stretch of trail from Mt Sutro along Stanyan Road and through Golden Gate Park, also known as the “Stanyan Edge.” The opening will occur during the park’s 150th anniversary year and will complete another critical connection in the San Francisco Reroute that leaves only the stretch over the iconic Twin Peaks to Mt Sutro section left to be built.

Why: In 2019, the Ridge Trail dedicated a beautiful section the winds its way through the beautiful ancient Oak Woodlands in Golden Gate Park and was named the Phil Arnold Trail after our former Board President. This was the second dedication along the San Francisco Reroute, after Mt Sutro Open Space Preserve, that shifts that Ridge Trail alignment from City streets and sidewalks to the iconic parks and opens spaces.

Funding need: $1M is still needed for the Twin Peaks Promenade redevelopment and connection of Twin Peaks to Mount Sutro for trail construction and hazardous tree removal.
