As one of the four modern "Endicott Type" coastal artillery batteries (built for coastal defence in 1901), Battery Spencer had to be strategically located. Though its military significance as a part of the historic Fort Baker has declined, the battery is now thought to be the best spot from which to catch sight of the Golden Gate Bridge and the city of San Francisco at the same time. The views are fantastic whether the day is foggy or not.
From the parking area, the path will take you past the fortifications, information signs, splitting down towards the battery, and up to Hendriks Point. At Hendrik Point, you’ll see the Angel Island, Belvedere and Raccoon Strait to your left, Mount Diablo to your right, and San Francisco in front.
It is one of the end points of the Golden Gate Bridge Walk.
