Views toward Fort Cronkhite from Battery Alexander

This short trail segment connects Rodeo Beach with Battery Alexander, one of five powerful batteries built by the U.S. Army around the turn of the 20th century. Those guns, manned by soldiers at nearby Fort Barry, were emblematic of the "Endicott Period" of coastal defense technology.
