Trail Closures on Mount Sutro
As of February 21, 2024 the following trails are closed for safety concerns -
South Ridge Trail
North Ridge Trail
Upper Historic Trail at Medical Center Way (see reroute)
We are happy to announce the Fairy Gates trail is now open! Happy hiking!
Woodland Canyon Creek
Even in cities, creeks flow! As cities are built, historic waterways generally get filled in, drained or piped underground. On Mount Sutro, we have a stream that has been buried for far too long! Woodland Canyon Creek begins at the summit of Mount Sutro with two tributaries that eventually converge in Woodland Canyon. Restoration of the canyon would result in a clear view of the creek and hopefully increase water flow. By planting native riparian species grown in our nursery, the canyon would serve as a biodiversity hotspot within Mount Sutro and San Francisco.
Native Plant Nursery
The Sutro Native Plant Nursery is located on Mount Sutro and propagates thousands of locally sourced California native plant species for our conservation efforts. During the winter rainy months, these locally adapted native plants are out planted into our restoration sites across the mountain. Which in turn creates habitat and forage for our resident birds, insects, and other wildlife. A limited number of plants and seeds are also available for sale to the public for crafting backyard habitat gardens!
Hike Mount Sutro
Did you know there is a multi-use trail system in the center of San Francisco? Come explore the 4.6 miles of Mount Sutro's award winning trails and beautiful landscapes. Right here within city limits! All of our trails are the result of thousands of hours of hard work completed by our very own volunteers. So come join us for a volunteer event or say hi if you see our volunteers working hard to keep the trails open for recreation.
