The views were amazing!!! However there was a lot of traffic and blind spots going up the mountain that we decided to drive it instead of hike!

Great place to hike and drive! There's little foot path when hiking from the bottom to the top. Be careful of cars driving by and people walking! Overall everything was great

Nice little drive up the mountain, parking at the top. The day I went it was bitter cold, with 20 mph north winds; so I didn't spend much time out looking at the views. But the views from the top are nice. Watch for hikers on the road as you make the curves

Good hike there 2 years ago and nice views on top of the boulders. Planning to go back again.
