You hike along the tree-lined perimeter of Fort Mott State Park to the Delaware River, where you walk on a sea wall and take in the views. From there you take the Interpretive Trail through a small forest and on to the serenity of Finn’s Point National Cemetery. Then it’s back to the fort for a tour of the massive gun emplacements, Officer’s Row, the moat, and other mysterious buildings, tunnels, and towers. While this hike includes a forest trail and dirt road, the actual tour of Fort Mott is on paved pathways and could be considered handicapped accessible.
