    This spot is amazing. The views are great, I was with my kids and they also loved it. We got some good pictures although it wasn't the clearest day ever. Very enjoyable.  more »

    I'm not experienced Strider more and certainly not trained mountain Walker. So the long climb, which first began quietly but on the last free style up went, it was a real challenge for me. For Mn son of 17 and wife was less of an issue. However, it was worth the effort. The views, the top is great, really well worth in 360 degrees. Now, we were lucky that the weather was reasonable, in bad weather, I might have been disappointed with the ROI:-).
