Trail shared by Phil DiGirolamo

Best used as part of a loop from the Marine Mammal Center down to Chronkite Beach

Phil DiGirolamo

Features Wildflowers

Family Friendly This is a more gradual way to get up to the bunker. Be aware that on some of the trails that connect back down to the beach, there are steep cliffs to the waters edge.

Description

The trail is wide with a gentle gradation. The trail is not heavily utilized by most visitors, so it offers some solitude.

Visitors who do decide to take this route will enjoy an exercise in geology as they take in views above the coast. When you come around the big right hand bend, be sure to look at the rock formations, as there are many living geological forces evidenced here.

Once visitors reach the top at the Battery Townsley, your views open up, and it is spectacular. Continue north up to the Wolf Ridge Trail or down toward the coast. Heading southward it is much easier going, and your return journey will be much easier as well.

Cyclists use this trail to complete a loop when they come into the Rodeo Valley. Watch for them in either direction.
