I’m so glad we drove over the Bridge to Battery Spencer! I was hesitant since most of the bloggers said finding a parking spot was a gamble. This was not the case for us on a Sunday afternoon in July! The road is pretty long...More

Excellent, up close view of the Golden Gate Bridge. We also read online about the battery and walked though the buildings. Definitely stop by here!

Short road up from the 101 past the Golden gate and you get to this point with lovely views of the golden gate bridge. Drive a little further up for a network of trails and views of the bay and the golden gate.

Whoa, it’s a hike up here, but well worth it! The views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, the Bay, etc are beyond description. Though this is a trite saying, you do literally have to see it to believe it. Only caveat: if you...More

We rode over the bridge and parked out bikes in the very small parking lot. We hiked up the steep hill and saw the most breath taking views of the GG Bridge. Get photos opportunities. Many folks were taking Uber/Lyft instead of fighting for parking...More

It's quite windy from Here! But despite that, Battery Spencer is a must visit place to admire the Golden Gate Bridge. There's a small hiking trail that you can follow through to take pictures of different angles of the bridge. Pictures don't do justice to...More

The view of the Golden Gate bridge is amazing from Battery Spencer. A different experience altogether. It can get windy at times. Parking can be a headache during peak hours.

I hiked all the way from the San Francisco side of the bridge to the Battery Spencer. I was dog tired, but it was WORTH IT. The view is breath taking with the beautiful bridge right in your face and the city of San Francisco...More

There is not that much to see from a historical perspective, but it has some amazing views that you can take pictures and relax with no park fees.

Excellent view, however the road up gets really busy and it is a bit chaotic. Finding somewhere to park can be difficult.
