Description

This is one of three forts that make a triangle to defend the heart of Puget Sound. Believe it or not, this was built before WWI, but was updated and armed again for WWI and WWII. Bring a flashlight and possibly a rain coat. There are so many dark corridors and hallways underground, and rooms that have stairways that lead nowhere. This place is a blast for history buffs and adventurers alike!

Long Walk: The fort is located pretty close to parking, depending on where you end up exploring.
