I wish I had taken pictures. Rocky crags high above the Long Island Sound and Narragansett Bay. Wind swept trees, short rough rocky paths. Some well-placed benches to stare out into the sea. Looking forward to going back for sunrise or sunset view. Limited parking. Open Sunrise to Sunset. Open cliffs to the sea, I personally would not recommend for... More

This is a lovely spot. The gps took us to a spot where the views were just spectacular. We sat for quite some time watching the boats in the bay. The, as we wandered around, we found more lovely spots with people fishing and relaxing. Just lovely.

Fort Wetherill is a great place to go scuba diving along the sea wall at the base of the fort. Though it has been a while since I last dove there, it offered a great place to see fish and lobsters diving a sea wall.. If there are sailing events you are looking to watch in bay, it is easier...

Worth the trip for the view alone, but you will want to bring a flashlight and keep close hold of any small children if you plan to look around the tunnels. Some of the rooms are still accessible, but the majority of the fort was fenced off for safety. It was such a shame to see all the vandalism and... More

Great place to relax and get back to reality. Benches on the cliffs are great to sit and enjoy the view. The trails are awesome to take a hike and pack a picnic. Enjoy the moment and put away the cell phone.

Perfect for a picnic Great for diving --- don't forget a camera. This is a wonderful place to walk around in the Summer, Spring and Fall and if we are fortunate ---even some winter... More

Cannot beat the views from the surrounding trails but forget about looking at the Fort itself. Local teens have trashed it, covered with broken bottles, graffiti, etc. It's an embarrassment.
