I actually like these trails better without the beloved steps! the climb to Fort hill is much more gradual and enjoyable that way. You still get the rad vistas of cedar point and the rocky tiver, too. as others have said, the trails beyond the just the hill have a feeling of being very remote very quickly. don't leave out the mount Pleasant loop either. far less traveled and a real hoot
The trail is in a really enjoyable area. The steps are really steep. It is something around 90 ft from the bottom to the top. This particular trail has heavy traffic, but some of the other trails nearby have a much more remote feel about them.
