  • A unique National Historic Site with friendly and informative staff at the visitor's center (both the ranger and volunteer staff). We enjoyed the hike and roaming around the fort. The site geography meant the fort had a different feel compared to other historic fort sites we've visited. We appreciated the history as well as the geographic understanding of what made this a key location. There is ample parking space.
  • Excellent! It is a loop trek. Start off on the ruins trail and taking the ridge trail back (located behind vistor center). This trek takes you through other ruins, cemetery, and other historical markers. Easy, until the moderate ridge trail (loose rocks, incline, and switchbacks). If you are unable to hike at least 3 miles, you can take the handicap access road. This takes you to the vistor center and fort. To see it all, it can be about 6 miles. Lots to take in. Count on spending at least half a day. Lots of sun exposure, bring water and check the weather.
