We took the bus here and hiked in. At the top are great views of Bermuda. We watched the America's Cup race from here and loved it! Great spot to picnic. There are restrooms but no food.

Nice view of the harbor and in the distance, a view of our ship at King's Wharf. Nicely preserved small fort with brick pavers at entrance but take care on the rock steps up to the gun emplacement.
