“Long hike, but great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

Long walk up a few hills, but once you get there it's quiet and relaxing. Great view as well. Nice spot to take pictures.

“Very secluded and worth the long hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

After riding throughout the interior trails in the island, we ended up at Fort Holmes. It was evening, so it was shaded and beautiful as we watched the ferries coming in and explored the fort. The view is definitely worth the sore legs from riding up there!

“The best view of the island!”

Fort Holmes is the highest spot on the island. The view is not to be missed. The history of the area is just neat.
