  • Very awesome view of all the lava domes around the bend area. We got to come back here when it's a clear day so we can see more. Great view of the mountains. When in Bend this is a must-see.
  • Beautiful view and interesting information at the top. The drive up is a very narrow road when passing oncoming traffic and parking is limited. This place gives the best view of all of bend.
  • Great work out if you want to hike up to the top and an easy drive for those looking to catch a great 360 view of Bend!
  • Beautiful 360° view where you can see all of Bend and then some. The best part, my house is right at the foot of it!!!
  • What an awesome way to get that blood pumping in the morning 🚴‍♀️😎👍
