This is a good vantage point to see both sides of the island and surrounding islands. The hike up the steps was challenging for my 45+ legs but it was well worth it. A must see!

The view from Fort gives nice look at Phillipsburgh & surrounding area. Not much remaining of original Fort but signs have been added to help understand the past.

This fort gives a great view of Great Bay and has super cooling breezes. It stands between Great Bay and Little Bay and gives historical information.

It was under construction (almost done) when I was there on February 6, 2018. It looked like it will be very nice when done. I would definitely go there when construction is complete.
