Dorsey's Knob Park is a small park, looks like its just about to wake up from winter. The trees have leaves, flowers are starting. You can read the history of the park and the area. They have picnic area, the park hosts events and weddings.

Indoors and outdoors, this lodge has it all. Beautifully furnished, well stocked kitchen, superb views from large deck with fine grill, here is the spot for groups. Plenty of parking too. My large birthday party was a hit at this facility. Try it!

My husband and I took a ride up then took the steep hike up the remainder of the hill to get the view of the city. Definitely need to be in better shape to climb the rock.
