  • Its a beautiful place to watch the sunset and the sunrise. There are a lot of stairs and its quite a hike but it is definitly worth the view 
  • good for the condition but for the rest a bit disappointed at the finish. you have no views by the high between and cell towers that stand there and absolutely no shelter from the Sun, so a hiccup for us

  • People like the botanical here you will find several species of cactus. This landscape I love with beautiful view from a viewpoint that is near.

  • Nice place...easy to climb up in 20 min because of the stairs! The view is great! BUT at the top a lot of electric cables lay on the ground. Looks not that save
  • Easy climb, only takes 10-15 minutes to get to the top via the steps. Nice romantic spot to watch the sunset.
  • Quite an exercise to get to the top, but the view is worth it.
  • Climbing up those stairs was scary but worth it for the views :)
  • Very hard to climb but when you reach the top is worth the effort
