  • Took the Hueblein Tower trail. Start of the trail is steep and then rest mostly flat. Nice views of the valley once your cross the steep part. The Heublein tower constructed in 1914 is a nice setting....  more

  • Beautiful view! Lots of hiking trails. I miss when I was a kid and it was a water park. But as an adult I appreciate a good hike up to the top with my friends! We love to explore the quarry and cool off with the water trickling out of it on really hot days. Part of the abandoned water park is still there. Which was cool until it started getting horribly vandalized. So If you’re looking to visit for that, you might be disappointed. However the view from the top will not!
  • Easy hike to the tower with the option to go further. Masks were required to go inside the tower, and I had forgotten mine. (This may have changed since). I'm giving 4 instead of 5 stars because parking was tight.
