Very well kept and beautiful cemetery with wonderful views of the GG Bridge. There are also hiking trails around it within the Fort that we used while staying at the Inn at the Presidio. Serene and peaceful.

We happened upon this cemetery in the Presidio. Beautiful, serene and dignified... God bless these service men and women along with their families. Reminded me of a smaller Arlington Cemetery.
