We plan to take the carriage tour and visit the fort. After getting off the carriage, how many stairs to the fort? Also, touring the fort, is this a moderate or more extreme activity. Some in our group have issues with climbing stairs.

Thank you for your question. There are no stairs upon arrival at Fort Mackinac from the Avenue of Flags entrance (where you'll arrive from the Carriage Tour). There is an elevator available at the Soldier's Barracks upon arrival. Touring Fort Mackinac is a more moderate activity, but there are a couple of access issues due to the historic nature of the site.
Here are some of the access issues at our site:
Access may be limited for some visitors with mobility impairments in these buildings:
The Officers’ Hill Quarters (11) has narrow hallways, thresholds and stairs to the second floor.
Two entrance steps lead to the Guardhouse (17).
Difficult Access Locations
Five to eight entrance steps to these buildings may make access difficult for visitors with
Post Bathhouse (4)
North Blockhouse (10) Alternate programs provided
Tea Room (15) Alternate service area provided
East Blockhouse (20)
Upper Gun Platform (19) Alternate programs provided
Alternate Building Entrances
Enter the Post Headquarters (2) through the Quartermaster’s Storehouse (3).
Enter the Officers’ Stone Quarters (14) through the back porch of the building.
Accessible service for the Tea Room (15) is available on the covered piazza at the rear of the Officers’ Stone Quarters (14).
The cannon demonstration, located up a flight of stairs on the Gun Platform (19), is shown live on a television monitor at the Water Well (21). All other scheduled programs are held in accessible areas.
A video program is available west of the North Blockhouse (10) exhibit.
I hope this answers your question, and we look forward to your visit!
Is this Fort accessible to visitors year round? Is the Fort open seven days a / week? Hours?
Is it elevator accessible ? Or walking only? How long is the average walk up the slope? Thanks!
It is only from early May until mid October each year, usually. The hill is steep and can be accessed by walking or from the north side by walking, biking, or carriage.
