Hill 88 is part of Fort Cronkhite, a World War II military post situated next to Rodeo Beach and the Paci?c Ocean. The well-preserved fort includes barracks, a mess hall, and supply buildings, which today house nonpro?ts such as the Marine Mammal Center, NatureBridge, and more. The fort’s military history isn’t just on the ground—it’s also high in the hills. On this route, you’ll pass by World War II–era Battery Townsley (open the ?rst Sunday of the month from noon to 4:00 PM), and you’ll summit 833-foot Hill 88, a former Nike missile radar station.
