This is a paved road with steep inclines but very accessible and good. The views are great. We saw the state line from both north and south shore. Awesome experience. There is a trail at the top with info stops and restrooms.

Black topped trail all the way to the top. Wonderful views of the lake. Great little "sub trail" with interesting signs. Easy for children, but a little bit of an incline. No parking lot, just the side of the road.

This mostly easy trail offers spectacular views of the lake. The entire trail is paved and has a steady incline until you reach the lookout. There is a small paved loop at the top that has educational markers and benches. Bathrooms and sitting areas at...More

Take a leisurely stroll up the paved road, it’s a steady climb but not strenuous. Then be sure to take the loop around the top and stop to read the info boards - beautiful and interesting. We parked along the side of the street a...More

locals said it's been closed for about a year. You could hike up to the lookout, but that would be trespassing, parking is schetchy ; along peoples' home or shoulderless road.
