  • This place is gorgeous, especially if you come from a flat area where mountains are rare. The only reason this didn't give it 5 stars is because there is stairs almost to the top, but if you want to make it to the peak, you gotta climb. It's an easy climb but might present an issue for some people. In all, a great experience.
  • Gloss Mountain state park is a beautiful mountain. They have stairs to climb up the mountain. But you need to wear closed toed shoes to climb up the stairs. Wearing open toed shoes will make it difficult to climb up the mountain. There are snakes around so need to pay attention to it. The views from the mountain top is very nice.
