The view is gorgeous! You can see the whole city and beyond. The drive up is also very pretty. We came when it was raining, but it was worth going.

You'll drive to the top and there's a concrete sidewalk that leads to both the shelter and the overlook. In fact, it's handicapped accessible

It is accessible by car. There is a parking lot and a short, easy walk to the overlook. There are also trails from there for those who want to explore further.
