Originally constructed as a jeep road between the gun batteries this trail has been narrowed to accommodate changes in use. The trail provides access to and allows for exploration of Battery Smith-Guthrie, Battery O'rorke and Battery Alexander. The loop can be completed in either direction from Battery Alexander. Along the trail one can expect to see views of the Pacific, waves crashing upon Rodeo Beach and if the weather is particularly fine, one can even make out the Faralonnes, some 30 miles distant.
