Fort Stevens First Day Hike - Jan. 1, 2020

The Fire Control Hill trail takes hikers along the top of the same forested dune that Battery Russell was constructed atop. Hikers will encounter the massive concrete Battery Russell and other remnants of fort's historic past. Many wonder why they see two pontoon boats in the middle of the forest. Come on the hike and find out why.
