  • Beautiful place to soak in a very nice sunset. Great view of Bend with the different mountains in the horizon. No fee park too - what more can you ask ? So 5 stars 🌟 for this location.
  • Would've gotten 5 stars if it was just 10 feet taller. So close. Good photo spot though... I guess. Dang nature... You pretty.
  • Beautiful 360 degree views of Bend, the mountains, and surrounding area. Lots of parking, a playground for kids, and good place to hike with your dog. Smaller trails for shorter hikes are available. Main loop takes about an hour to get to the top and is a great, easy hike for all of the family.
  • Very nice place to view central oregon from. I love the kiosk in the middle that points out all of the visible landmarks in Central Oregon.
  • great spot overlooking all of bend. little parking, though.
