We walked all 216 steps to the top! Great view! Enjoyed a walk along the water. There were lots of schoolkids there on field trips. It was well worth the trip.

Keep being drawn back to his noble place. It's stunning in appearance and magnetism. If one has a romantic notion of being at the seaside and shore, this is it. You can actually climb to the top and the guides are helpful, polite and courteous....More

This is a fun quick trip that involves history, physical activity and a great view. Our family enjoys going once a summer! The souvenir shop nearby is also a fun trip!

Great climb and walk along the water. There is a boardwalk and an additional challenging walk on the rocks.

Sorry, I just saw your question, I would have to say I doubt it would be open as it is a state holiday. Though you can likely walk through the park.
