We took jeeps up the winding road to access this fort. If you’re really strong, walk it. Our guide spoke a mile a minute and was a wealth of information on the history of this region. Watch you head when going through doorways here. Recommended.

The fort was preserved in a very good way and we enjoyed the sun room and took a lot of pictures. We also saw the spring that is just nearby the fort and we enjoyed apricot drink up there as well. Cool Place to go.

It's small, cold, a little dusty, and I imagine kind of smokey in the winter when people had to cook indoors and live in the kitchen. Makes me feel pretty good about my first NYC apartment.
