I think this will be a nice place for Catholics to do some pilgrimage. You will need to hike to get to the church or Basilica at the top of the hill. And on the way to top you will see the stations of the...More

I enjoyed walking up both hills, one on each side of the road, along with my colleagues. The day was sweltering - 80% humidity and 36 degrees - so the air conditioning in the astronomy and earthquake museums provided welcome respite. The tree-lined paths, the...More

Went recently on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Weather was great so walking around the area was pleasant. There are some inclined rock pathways and stairs, it wasn't so bad though. Saw lots of kids (and even people bringing baby strollers) to the scattered picnic/bench areas...More

Great spot to take the kids for a half-day trip. 3 hours walking around two little hills (about 80m vertical accent from parking lot to summit). No actual paths, just paved walkways. Wasn't too crowded when I went. Not something to do unless you live...More

Visited during weekend and while there were fairly much people wouldn't say that it was too crowded & some of the pathways like the wooden plank way from West gate to the South gate was very quiet and offered forest views which are so rare...More
