Visited Fort Hill on a guided tour. Awesome Fall views of the salt marsh and the surrounding meadows. Tons of historical relevance. Thoreau saw the beauty and it is still here to treasure.

Beautiful area, nice easy hike. It is a bit muddy in places so I’d recommend wearing boots! The house nearby is stunning.

There are two small parking areas here, the first very close to the Perriman House and the second up the hill and looking out to sea. There were only about six cars between the two areas, so parking was easy, not so in the high season probably. The house was not open when we were there, but you can walk around outside and get a good view of it. The views from the second car park are outstanding, again with saltmarsh meeting ocean and plenty of birdlife. As there were few people about it was really peaceful and you could enjoy the solitude.

There are two parking lots here that offer a short hike to an estuary area with fantastic views and abundant wildlife. There were boats staged in the bays that I assumed were clamming. Wonderful views in all directions. Worth the short walk.

From the parking lot there are fantastic views across the marshlands, the estuary and the sea. For those that want to walk there are numerous trails. There were only a few other vehicles there when we visited so it was quiet and peaceful.
