  • Awesome views, but be prepared for a lot of steps to get there. There are ways to drive to the top as well, but they are steep. Really cool once you get to the top.

  • Great views. Good exercise if you walk to the top. Would be nice if you could go in the lighthouse or if there was some kind of visitors building at the top.

  • A work out of a climb. Great views of the river and Hannibal.
