Sunday, September 30  – Batteries To The Bluffs Walking Tour of Fort Scott Artillery Batteries With John Martini

On this easy walk we’ll explore the new Bay Trail and Coastal Trail that skirt the bluff tops of Fort Winfield Scott. We’ll enjoy gorgeous views and see the army fortifications that guarded the bay from the 1860s through World War II. Highlights include vistas of the Golden Gate straits, coastal gun emplacements, a stroll beneath the girders of the Golden Gate Bridge, and a peek at the expansive soon-to-be-renovated parade ground and barracks at Fort Winfield Scott. 2 hours.

Meet at the Battery East parking lot on Lincoln Blvd (directly across from Pilots’ Row Housing) at 9:00 AM. [Map]

We will meet at the San Francisco Ferry Building at 9:30 AM to set off on the 10AM ferry to Vallejo, where we will begin a short walking tour of Old Downtown, including the Lower Georgia district, frequented by Navy sailors and once known for its drinking, gambling and bordello houses. From there we will tour the Vallejo Naval and Historic Museum. Our tour will be guided by Brendan Riley, author of Lower Georgia Street. Before returning to San Francico, we will have lunch at the Mare Island Brewery Taproom at the Vallejo Ferry Building.
