  • 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!
  • One of the best places in the area to enjoy nature. Be sure to check out the quarry and the fire tower.
  • Awesome place to stop and hike for a quick 1hr loop, or longer day hike. Plenty of trails through varying terrain. Beautiful views, especially from the firetower as well.
  • Incredible views, absolutely beautiful state park! $5 for a one hour pass per car, or $11 for an all day pass.
