    Great view of the local area from here. Cool old castle-like building on top. Can get crowded. Park around the base is well maintained.

    Fun way to see this place is running on Sundays... The road to it is shut down, and you can run right to it! It's also a nice place for a stroll while you check out some nick backs! Beautiful views too!
