Great spot for phots. We loved the views. Nice easy wide trails makes easy access. This area is well maintained and can accommodate lots of people. It was part of the hike to the lake. Not hard at all - more of a walk.

Yeah you can take it, but you have to take it outside the cruise. Right there in the pier there some drivers that can take you over there.
