  • Beautiful open hiking trails. Several entrances can get it from above or below. Walk the hills go to the beach have a picnic. Enjoy the beauty of history exploring the old battle mounts from world war II. A beautiful day and a beautiful road trip. If you go the Fort Baker route you get to see it all top to bottom.
