Long Description:
The sign says, "The Old Presidio Historic Trail

A short walk to the Serra Museum and the site of California's first Spanish mission and presidio.

Did You Know?

On a trail close to this one, soldiers and families walked down from the Spanish presidio two centuries ago to tend their gardens and livestock. Around 1820, some families started to build houses beside their gardens and "Old Town ” was born. The Carrillo House may have been the first. Part of it still stands on the golf course to your left. What is a Presidio? (Learn the answer on the next sign.)"
