Inscription.  This trail witnessed the passing of Spanish soldiers, Franciscan missionaries and American soldiers of two centuries. It is perhaps the oldest travel corridor in San Francisco.

In 1776 this path connected the Spanish Presidio with the mission, three miles to the southeast. During the 1860s it became the main route used by off-duty soldiers to walk into San Francisco. Many of the men made the trip into town to meet their sweethearts and the trail became known as Loverís Lane.
 
Erected by Goldern Gate National Recreation Area.
