Geocache Description:

This is a national park site. Please: -Stay on trails. -Refrain from feeding wildlife. -"Leave no trace" (only leave your signature in the log book!)

Mountain Lake is a Presidio treasure and the only natural lake in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. It's one of three original San Francisco lakes that existed before the city was built. Originally larger and considerably deeper, it faces challenges such as poor water quality and degraded habitat. The National Park Service, Presidio Trust, and Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and hundreds of community volunteers are working hard to improve the health of Mountain Lake by improving water quality, removing non-native vegetation, revitalizing native plant communities, and providing improved site furnishings including benches, and interpretive trails.
