Spiritual or not, this is a good place to visit, its quiet and peaceful. It is high in the mountains, so walking up the steps could be a challenge for some. Definitely worth a brief visit, or a longer one.

The statue and views along the way to the top, are worth every step to the top! Great place to sit on a memorial bench and say a prayer, very serene. Ask the gift shop if you have a disability, they will accommodate you. After coming down, the complimentary cold, spring water is very refreshing. Highly recommend this outing to... More

worth a drive up the hill and a walk to the shrine. It is worth one stop, but it was enough for me in the heat.

The story of Sister Cabrini is very moving and the site is easy to get to. However the climb to to the top of the knoll is livery taxing for older people and especially in hot weather when combined with the altitude. It is a walk of faith and sacrifice but may not be wise if your from a sea-level... More

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
