Love the views up here. Beautiful and quick drive from the city. Love the hiking trails and just a nice place to relax and get away from it all. Like it when they have the art festival going on.

Scenery and walking paths are well designed for safety and take advantage of the lush mountain flora. The sunrise was spectacular from the overlook.

This is an outdoor activity, lots of hiking trails. There is camping. There is also a nice park with grills and tables. You need to bring your own activities or just sit and look out at the scenery.
