The views were amazing. It had snowed the day before so the mountains in the distance were beautiful! It’s a small hike but nothing major and nothing that is not normal.

Awesome views! Drive all the way up! Beautiful lookouts. Good for those with babies & small children because you can see tons on the drive & at overlooks... without having to hike a ton. 360 views! Short drive.
