I really loved going up there to see this wonderful shrine to the Mother Cabrini, It was a great experience. The only thing was a bit scary was going up the mountain and also being so high up that I felt a bit like I needed more oxygen. So be careful, maybe bring a can of Oxygen with you! They... More

We saw a sign for the shrine right off the highway, and we went! It's about 350 steps to the top of the shrine, and there is a Sacred Heart that Mother Cabrini herself formed in rocks. Beautiful area! Great view from the top.

My friends were driving me around sight seeing when I saw the sign for the Shrine to Mother Cabrini. As a Catholic of Italian descent, my mother had told me that my patron saint was St Frances Cabrini. My friends humored me and took the turn off the highway and we ascended the hill. If you are non-Catholic, the views... More

We just happened to see the sign while trying to get to Look Out Mountain. Saw the shrine from the road and decided to investigate. The stairway looked steeper and longer than it really was. Inspirational. The faith of people evident. Glad we visited.

First you have a graceful entrance up the curvy road and views of vistas. It takes you back to another time, when life was not so filled with distractions. The Chapel brings you moments of reflection and gift shop has items to remind you of your faith and visit. They have blessed water so bring some kind of container. Also... More

This was a really nice place to visit. There was a bit of hiking involved. Small museum. Small chapel. Two grottos. A fountain of holy water. Beautiful garden laid out with stones to follow and say the rosary. A hike up the hillside to see the statue. My favorite part was the beautiful stained glass behind the chapel. The ladies... More

The Mother Cabrini Shrine is a beautiful area, worth the trip. The Chapel and religious faith of visitors is inspiring, even if you can't make the hike to the top of the hill.

We had our annual spiritual women's retreat here for the second time and it was amazing again! The steps up to the shrine are an essential experience. For those with difficulty climbing stairs (there are a lot of stairs!) you can drive to the top when it isn't too muddy. The only downside was that the food wasn't as good... More

This was a beautiful shrine to visit and a good hike up the hill. Along the hike up are beautiful Stations of the Cross and Mysteries of the Rosary. At the top is a huge statue of the Risen Jesus with great views at the top. Definitely recommend for Catholic families.
