  • I really don't understand or know what is happening with the schedule for this particular location because I have been trying valiantly to post the hours of operation for the entire week but as always google refuses to approve my edits! I even typed in a question in the questions section to see if someone by any chance would give me the correct answer but they only give me dumb replies such as: "People start climbing up the hill as early as 5:00 a.m." or "It is open every day until late at night." or "They open on weekends from 9:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. I sincerely hope that if any of you staffers who works here ever takes the time to read my review you post the correct hours of operation for the benefit of the general public! In this way they can get an idea of when they can come visit without any difficulty! Thank you all for your courtesy!
