Project: Golden Gate Overlook




Golden Gate Overlook

Location: San Francisco, California

Situated along the north end of San Francisco’s coastal bluffs and along the famous Coastal Trail and wrapping right under the Golden Gate Bridge, the Golden Gate Overlook and Trail provides an ADA accessible overlook with commanding views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Marin Headlands and the Pacific Ocean. Sherwood teamed with Marta Fry Landscape Architects to design this overlook and this segment of the Coastal Trail that weaves along the bluffs from the Golden Gate Bridge through several former military batteries. Sherwood provided trail grading and stormwater management services as well as viewshed studies to identify the ideal location for the overlook.
