This place can get busy and there is a $5 State Park fee. When you get there the views are amazing of Cook Inlet, the mountains and... More

Steep but very accessible drive to parking lot, then a moderate stroll up to the viewing area giving fantastic views over Anchorage & the Cook Inlet. Parking fee $5.
