4/12/19 - Late afternoon and I only saw someone walking down the road as I was walking up. It is a small parking to get to the 1/4-mile walk up the hill. It is true that there is very little to indicate that there was a bunker here at all, but I still found it interesting enough to be worth a visit.


I was lucky enough to venture inside it a few times years ago before it was covered. It was enormous.
