Definitely would recommend! Beautiful views and the walk up isn't too long (signs said 40 minutes, but easily done in 20-30). If you want to avoid big crowds, would recommend going in late afternoon/evening, especially in the summer when it's light!

Easy to access if you park near the panorama hotel (about 600m fairly flat). Impressive to see what was constructed so long ago and the wonderful scenery surrounding and in the distance
