It is a 1.3 km hike to the top, but well worth the effort. Such a gorgeous view! Parking is easy and the parking area is not far off the road.

the description of the walk to the viewpoint as "handicapped accessible" is inaccurate unless you have a diesel powered wheelchair. The view and the wooden pavilion at the top make it worthwhile, and we saw people of all ages trudging up the hill.

We loved this sight, and the building was beautiful and cosy on the insight. The wooden appearance fits perfectly in the raw landscape. In this warm summer, we really enjoyed the wind here.

We walked up here on a very rainy day in August. Despite the bad weather it's still a magical place to visit...and also with a welcoming fire burning ! Both the architecture and view are amazing !
