Fort Gorges’ dark halls are steeped in history and mystery, and its position on the island gives the appearance that the walls are rising out of the sea. Be on the lookout for the local harbor seals and boats which dot the water’s surface. Once you reach the island, there is a small beach and granite block pier. Perhaps the best part about exploring the fort is the incredible view of Portland’s city skyline, which can be seen from the rooftop.
