It's a steep walk up to the the fort but well-worth the effort for the views and restored armaments that were never used.

We really enjoyed our time visiting this historic site and after the long climb up to the fort the great view it afforded of the harbor.

It's long walk up to Fort Hamilton but worth the hike. It offers a beautiful view of Hamilton Harbor. Surrounding the fort is a moat that is now filled with interesting native plants. It would not recommend this for the elderly or those with walking disabilities though. the last two blocks in Hamilton (from Court Street to King Street) are a bit more "industrial" than the eateries a few blocks away. Then there is a windy sidewalk and walled sidewalk in order to get up Happy Valley Road.

I noticed this on the Hamilton street map and thought it was worth a look. Its not vast and probably not worth a special visit from outside of Hamilton but if you are staying in Hamilton its worth a visit.

There is a lot of history here with the cannon and structure dating back the past century. History buffs will find this spot intriguing, tranquil and memorable. It is close enough to downtown to walk or by scooter.
