If you have kids who like forts and cannons, bring them here.
You can't see Fort Frederick from the road or even the visitor center, but believe me it's big.
This Quest starts inside the fort but quickly moves you out in the woods and meadows, beyond the thick, stone walls. It's relaxing, educational and the interpretive rangers, like Rob Ambrose, make it fun.
My Park Quest passport now has six stamps. It's off to South Mountain, the Appalachian Trail and South Mountain Creamery for some S'mores ice cream.
