  • Beautiful park with beautiful views. We were able to identify at least 15 different flower species on one small part of the hill. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area! Also, it’s wheelchair accessible. So it’s a lovely place to get into nature if you have limited mobility. Lastly, there is a bathroom at the top of the hill if you need it!
  • Be careful on the spiral winding road up and down as it’s a bit narrow and two-way traffic, but the views from the top are worth it. There’s plenty of parking on two levels. There’s some fun and interesting info boards at the top. 360 degree views. Even during the Smokey time when there were fires from crop burns and excessive heat and dry conditions, the views were expansive.
