It was a sunny day and we drove through it easily, without much traffic or slippery road. Would definitely return.

OMG—absolutely beautiful views! It was also very clean. Definitely a place to visit...it really makes for a good spot to have a picnic or to go clear your mind. Taking a photo or two works as well (smile).

The trails through the mtns. are extensive and well maintained. You need to be in good physical shape for the steeper hikes. Be sure to take water, snack, hat and sun block. Don't overdo it. Beautiful scenery!
