This iconic landmark is one of the most picturesque locations in the Emerald Necklace. The Fort Hill Stairs ascend to stunning views 90 feet above the east and west branches of the Rocky River.
After significant movement of the shale cliff alongside the steps, the original 135 steps were removed for the safety of visitors. Following the process of removal, construction of 155 new stairs began in late May 2016, opening in November 2016.
In addition to growing the stair count by 20 steps, they are fifty percent wider, measuring six feet across.
