  • How amazing is this? Nice view of Square Tower House from this viewpoint. We went as soon as the park opened so it was really nice and peaceful driving around and no issues with parking, there are only few spots to park along the whole loop at each point of interest stop.

  • What a beautiful place!! We went during the off season so there were no tours available to go down to the site but we will definitely go again!! Beautiful from the lookout. If visiting or living in this area its worth the trip!!
