We drove up to the lookout as we had my 82 yr old grandmother with us. This was beautiful beyond words and can imagine the hike would have been worth it. The sky was so clear and the colors were so vibrant. Worth the drive!

There are several look out stops along the way. At the end of the trail there are venders with fresh fruit and gifts as well as information. IT is worth the drive and the view. Even better, take a boat and see it from the...More
