Description

Travel along the series of batteries designed to protect the southern entrance into the San Francisco Bay. This is an easy going trail heading in and out of some trees, exposed on top of the bluff, and hidden just like many of the bunkers and batteries. Go back in history and have fun imagining being on lookout duty looking for submarines and planes approaching the coast.
