Not much I can say about this. It's an amazing view of Northern Trinidad. It's quiet and peaceful up there. The only thing it might benefit from is a shop or something.

The drive to this location is very interesting as the road is narrow but it's worth the drive! The view of the West and Port of Spain is breathtaking. It's peaceful and I enjoyed it!

The view is breathtaking on a sunny day. Well worth it. I used to live on that hill and woke to the view every morning. Had a very hard time moving on from that place. Be careful of the crime though. Best to go in large groups and around 430pm-5pm when its busiest.

The drive up may be tedious to some, but honestly the serenity of Fort George makes me feel all tingly inside. I think we all need time to reflect! This place, this view really is awesome. Wish it closes after sunset hours, because that would just be the cherry on the cheesecake. A must see!
