We had read the reviews and knew this was not a hiking trail. It is a short walk with some lovely flowers and a nice view. It took about 5 minutes to get to the end of the trail and see the view. People who go there to use the meditation room will of course have a different take, but... More

Tranquil surroundings, spectacular vistas, lovely grounds. Could use more benches/seating areas outdoors for those of us less capable of getting up off the ground.

The quiet and the peace... the tranquil, well-landscaped path to the sunset is remarkable. Sunset view is truly memorable. Breathtaking views in an enchanting locale. I'd never been anywhere else like this for sunset.

Peaceful and quiet, away from the bustle of life. The views are outstanding. Gardens with benches for relaxing or contemplating. Tables on a concrete patio for a one of a kind lunch spot (bring your own eats).

This gorgeous place is so peaceful. Stop and take in the view, breathe in the gorgeous aroma around you, and chill out. Lie in the grass, sit on a bench, meditate anywhere you land, take magnificent photos, and above all appreciate this hidden gem. Unbelievable and totally worth it.
