During the early 1900’s, Battery Spencer was one of the main protection points for the San Francisco harbor. Now it's the place with one of the best views of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco in the background.

Battery Spencer was a concrete coastal gun battery with three M1888 12" guns mounted on long range Barbette M1892 carriages. The construction was begun in 1839 and completed in 1897. It was deactivated in 1942 during World War II.

It can be hard to find parking (at least legal). There's more parking below and a trail up but it's probably not a good idea in riding gear. Perhaps the best option is to avoid weekends.

If you ride the bride (or highway 101 from the north), exit to Alexander Avenue and look for signs to Hawk Hill. Checking the map and Google Streetview in advance might be a good idea.

Condition for logging the find

Walk to the battery (about 700ft) and enjoy the view. If you can't find parking and you have come a long distance, you may enjoy the views from the parking areas and log your find.
