Only a redoubt boundary exists here at this part of the NPS. There are a few picnic tables and some signage. You can skip this part of the driving tour and wouldn't miss anything.
This is just a nice mountain overlook with a view of the east. Not much to see here, mainly just a place to walk with a few historic markers.
There is no Fort as you would expect but as legend has it, Washington, who spent two difficult winters in Morristown, assigned his soldiers the task of building a fort that was never meant to be more than an exercise to keep them busy.

Near the downtown of Washington. Built to give the soldiers something to do during the hard Winter of 1777. No real purpose. On a rare occasion, New York City can be seen.
George Washington constructed this small circular fort to observe the movements in NYC of the British troops about 25 miles east. The view remains but just the outline of the fort. On good days you can see NYC over 2 sets of foothills.
A nice little area with a beautiful view of the town below. There are descriptions of what the fortifications looked like and what Washington's men did there. There are picnic tables and would be a nice place to eat lunch. Worth stopping by for 10-15 minutes to look around and enjoy the scenery.
