Easy to visit, fabulous views, and a priceless way to grasp an important part of the Civil War. The Visitor Center provides explanation.

The loop can be walked in less than 10 minutes. Stopping to read the history, and see the views could take you 30-60 minutes. It's nice, and well kept--but $7?! The only restroom is a port-a-pot.

Worth the visit! Great views of the river and city. There is a park to relax in after your hike up the hill.
