I recommend planning a half a day for this area. Lots of walking and very worth it indeed. This is a great place for views and a good spot to stop for a picnic before heading up to the top of the hill. Truthfully though, this is only about 1/4 of the way up. There are much better views from the top. I would rate down to a 4 but it is still worth a 5 because it is a must see area.
