“Breath taking view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

The views are breath taking and you can almost touch the clouds. The wind is chilly so bring a jacket. The walking trails are tough,very steep. You have to be in shape. Bring your hiking boots.

“Go to the top”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

If you like photography then you need to go here to get some great shots of the city/harbour. Go at night, even though Cabot tower is closed but you can still get some nice night shots of the city.
