  • A great landmark and wonderful place to visit. The views are spectacular and really need to be experienced! I really wish people didn't go there to trash the back trails, though. Stinks when I take my kid there and he almost steps on glass shards, old condoms and fast food containers. It's such a great landmark for our community, I just wish people were more respectful of it.
  • We saw this sitting on top of the mountain. There were directional signs that said PAGODA so we followed thinking there must be a cool history behind it. It was easy to find, but once there we found no history, no staff, no signs....nothing. You can walk around it, take pics of the amazing view, but you will learn nothing about it except it can be rented for private parties. Go check it out and see what you can.
