The winding roads going up lead to a spectacular vantage point for an amazing view. There are picnic areas, playground for the kids, beautiful birds and deer in enclosures. Great visit for family with children.

Drove up to the top as wanted to take one of the trails but were closed for military practices but went up walking around the little zoo and the picnic area. Beautiful views. With the ride up.
