“Amazing Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Seems to be the less visited of the two known forts. Amazing vantage point from what feels like the top of the world...probably due to the winding road up there with hairpin turns. You're free to wander the forts grounds and can easily picture soldiers in the olden days keeping watchful eyes on the horizon for any hint of invasion or pirate raiders. Definitely worth the trip.

“Alice in Wonderland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

That is what she called herself......the tour guide for this Fort. She told us how appreciative the Grenadians were to the Americans for rescuing them by liberating them from the attempted overthrow of their government back in 1984. I was moved to tears by her description of the gratitude. This fort is where the bad guys were hold up and the U.S. soldiers successfully took it over. The movie Heartbreak Ridge was filmed there.

“Fantastic Views over St Georges”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Not that easy to find but worth the climb for the views over St Georges. You can also see the Atlantic coast to the East. There is not a great deal in the fort itself but it is wort paying a few dollars for the guided tour and some local history.
