You are standing on the site of Fort Clinton, which was built along with Fort Montgomery to prevent British ships from sailing up the Hudson River during the Revolutionary War. On October 6, 1777, the British captured both forts and destroyed them shortly thereafter.

This trail leads down to the Popolopen Creek and across a bridge to Fort Montgomery State Historical Site. Fort Montgomery is an archeological site and a historic ruin. Interpretive signs and an audio tour are available to help you understand the history of the fort and the battle.
