  • If you can drive up, then the views are great! If you walk up there on a cold and windy day, maybe not worth the trip. In any event, like any high elevated area, you will have spectacular views.

Amazing drive up but pretty dicey if an oncoming car has to get by. You will be very close to the edge with no guardrails on your right side. The drive down is less scary just go slow so people coming up don't go careening off the side when they see you.
