Hike To A World War II-Era Bunker On The Trek To Battery Townsley In Northern California

Hiding in the Marin Headlands is a little-known piece of history that makes for a fascinating adventure. During the era of World War II, an artillery bunker known as Battery Townsley guarded the Northern California coast. Although it never saw the action an invasion would’ve brought, the bunker itself remains to this very day. You can see it for yourself when you embark on this trek in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, so lace up those hiking boots, charge your camera, and be sure to check out this historic destination.
