Bit of a steep incline, but the views are nice. The museum is very small, but quite interesting. Look for George Washington.

This was a fun excursion. We enjoyed climbing the Mound, which was an easy climb, and we really enjoyed the views once we got up there. We then took a walk through the woods nearby, which was nice and quiet.
