Recent History and Future

The La Playa Trail Association was formed in 2005 to continue the work of the 1930's. There are 70 registered sites between Ballast Point and the Presidio. Our goal is to reconstruct, refurbish, and add new markers that identify historical sites along the trail. We are endeavoring to build a monument to the soldiers of Fort Rosecrans and securing a monument to the Gold Rush era cemetery at Old La Playa. Our goal is to reconstruct, refurbish, and add new markers that identify historical sites along the Trail along with educating the public about Point Loma's history.
