Photos from Take a Hike at Sagmore Hill

Fall color.

Cliff leading the way.

Panama gun mount base. The weapon which sat atop it, could be rotated 360 degrees, firing 120 pound projectiles at a rate of 4/minutes with a range of ~20 miles to protect the east coast of the Cape Cod Canal.

Looking toward Phillips Rd.

A former tunnel entrance which connected plotting rooms and ammunition storage rooms to the observation and battery command station on top of Sagamore Hill during World War II.
