Beautiful view! Great marksmanship!!! Everyone had a great time! Don’t be fooled by the size. Worth the effort to walk up to the top. Not all steps, many ramps to walk up which make it easier to get to top! Museum was educational as well....More

It takes some effort to get to the top but definitely worth it! A mix of ramps with steps makes it more manageable. The views once you get to the top are beautiful.

No place to check in a backpack but as it's a reasonably gentle grade with plenty of waiting places as you go it, provided its not too big it should be no problem.

It will probably take you about 20 minutes to walk from the Monument to the ferry for Long Point. Have fun!
