Runner Notes

Flat and fast, do intervals if no else is around.

Description

This loop can be easily accessed from the Battery Alexander parking area. Whichever direction you choose to run, you'll be blessed with beautiful vistas. This is a very flat trail with a number of side trails to explore, with the ocean on one side and the lagoon on the other. There are hills all around, with bunkers tucked into the middle of the loop. Half-way around, there is a bench to sit and contemplate or keep going and be amazed.
