The views are breathtaking. We also liked to look over and see Norton Va from Flag Rock. The reservoir are really neat to see also. The family hikes are great and have great look out points.

Long drive up a very narrow, windy road, but worth it!! Short walk up to the tower for spectacular views of five states! (Also wheelchair accessible!) Wear shoes or sneakers, not sandals like me. Since you are over 4000 feet up, it can be very...More
