The short hike up to the viewing platform was easy. The views were stunning. The marked pictures as to what we were looking at was well done.

On the advice of our shuttle driver, we decided to get out at this stop. You can see the peaks from the road, but the very short climb up the path is well worth the 3-minute detour. The path is easily climbed by anyone, even...More

Beautiful views. The peaks are incredible . The best way to see them and take pictures is to cross the road and hike to the overlook.
