  • Nice views and interesting terrain. When we came in March the winter attractions like skiing were closed and some of the summer attractions like the gift store were not open. However it was nice to walk around and one set of pit toilets were open.
  • This is a very special place ! I love to go on walks during the fall and summer. Great Ski Hill!
  • Beautiful views this place is crazy cool for a family but you could even go there alone and have a great time. You can climb the tower and see for like 100 miles.
  • One of the best places in the area to enjoy nature. Be sure to check out the quarry and the fire tower.
  • Beautiful view, you do have to pay $5 for an hour to park up on top.
