Existing Eagle's Point Overlook

Eagle's Point Overlook Replacement, Lands End

Golden Gate National Recreation Area » Eagle's Point Overlook Replacement, Lands End » Document List

This project will replace the existing deteriorated viewing platform with a new view point. The new view point will be accessible, easier to maintain, and set back within the trail alignment. The view point design includes benches for sitting and enjoying views of the Golden Gate. A small concrete curb will protect the viewpoint's outer edge. Non-native, invasive trees will be removed from the viewshed. The trail to the new viewpoint will be resurfaced and regraded to meet The Draft Final Accessibility Guidelines for Outdoor Developed Areas (AGODA) standards. Native vegetation will be planted in areas disturbed by tree and overlook removal and adjacent to the new viewpoint.

Project Goals
• Remove the existing dilapidated Eagles Point Overlook
• Replace the overlook with a viewpoint just west of the existing location
• Regrade and resurface the existing Coastal Trail alignment from the entrance at El Camino del Mar to the new viewpoint location to create an accessible trail route
•Remove non-native, invasive trees
•Remove non-designated trails which are unsafe and cause erosion
•Replant disturbed areas with native vegetation
•Update directional and interpretive signs

The public is invited for a site walk and visit with the project planners on Saturday, January 12, 2013 at 10am. Meet at the Eagle's Point Trailhead ( on El Camino del Mar at the border with Lincoln Park).

Construction Schedule
Fall 2013 – overlook removal and new viewpoint installation
