The Presidio: Get Out Your Smart Phone and Take a Geek-Hike With Ranger Rick

New, 5 comments

As part of their programs for kids, the Presidio Trust and the National Wildlife Federation are sponsoring three geocache hikes via the Presidio's existing trail system. While it's intended as a parent-and-kid activity, it also sounds like a perfect opportunity for adults to test a basic iteration of what can be a challenging sport- without the usual quicksand and ravines promised by more advanced geocache games. There's a downloadable map for Mom/Dad if things get out of hand, and we're assuming the prizes get replenished on a regular basis.

The GPS Coordinates for three hidden stamp boxes in the southwest corner of the Presidio are:

N 37° 47.255 W 122° 28.732 Lobos Dunes Boardwalk Bounty
N 37° 47.387 W 122° 28.443 Dunes & Hospital Cemetery Vista
N 37° 47.299 W 122° 28.229 Mountain Lake Mystery

As for Ranger Rick's creepy raccoon, blame the National Wildlife Federation, not the Presidio Trust. Take a look back at the Presidio and Curbed SF's Outdoor Week 2011. It's not just about arguing over museums and hotels.
