“What a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Do make the effort to go up the pass. The views from the top are truly stunning, getting a view of the valley and surrounding mountains.

“Beautiful view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

It really is stunning. Just remember you have to contend with cyclists and large trucks and there is very little space. The views are just awesome
