  • Amazing view above the valley, the clouds go by almost as in fast forward. Great place to get out and unwind
  • Easy one mile loop hike with nice views. Trail is very well traveled. Good for small kids.
  • We came here to release my friend's dad's ashes. It was a beautiful hike. Super chilly. Very, very windy. I actually got a mouth full of dad ash... yum! The hike was great though. There is a lot of freedom to explore and not a lot of people.
  • Gorgeous vista with small souvenir shop and information on local flora/fauna.
  • Sad and pathetic. I hate this.
