The Lower Terraces boardwalk is flat, while the Upper Terraces features a stairway up to the observation deck.
You can also take a tour of the fort and the surrounding area. The Fort was built before the National Park Service was formed, so you can’t enter most of the buildings. The tour is self-guided, but you’ll have the chance to see the chapel and cavalry barracks. The program is generally about an hour long, and will start at the Albright Visitor Center’s theater.
