The Presidio, our newest National Park, is an ideal locale for beginning and intermediate orienteers, with a central location and relatively easy terrain, not to mention historic buildings and scenic views.

Event Times


Note: Wooded areas have some poison oak, so off-trail participants should wear long pants.


All the action will start from Pershing Square (a.k.a. the Main Parade Ground).

From the North or South on Highway 1: Turn East on California St. and go about 13 blocks to Arguello Blvd. Turn left and go about 4 blocks, entering the Presidio via the Arguello Gate. Follow Arguello, veering right at the fork, all the way down to the Main Parade Ground (big parking lot). Follow the orienteering signs to the registration/start area.

From the East: Use the Lombard St. entrance. Go about 1/4 mile, veering right onto Presidio Blvd., which becomes Lincoln Blvd. Continue on Lincoln until the Main Parade Ground appears on the left between Graham and Montgomery.
