  • This is a nice mountain area reminiscent of the mountains of Colorado. There are tons of hiking trails, 4wd roads, and places to camp.  more »
  • I love being in the forest and being able to see for miles and miles! It is an easy hike along the rim to some prime viewing spots.  more »
  • Although Visitor Centre not open yet when we were there...still can walk around the back onto the deck and see the spectacular views. An info board points out all the ranges. Nice spot for a few pics  more »
