I was extremely impressed with cleanliness of this facility. Also would like to personally recognize an employee named Molly for her phenomenal customer service. She went above and beyond to make sure everything in that bathroom was sparkling clean. Better than the view! 👍

So glad I stopped and had a visit. I was interested in seeing the Veterans Memorial, and the value added from the spectacular view, made my day. Thank you for the hospitality also !

Not much to do since they moved the museum to Hancock but it was worth the stop for the view. It is very pretty at this location.

Great spot to pull over, use the facilities, & stretch your legs. The views are amazing. It's awesome to see how they carved through the mountain to make the pass. Convenient exit/re-entry to Route 68.

The striation in rock is beautiful. It hard to imagine how this pass was carved through the mountain. Beautiful view of mountains, trees. This is a must stop great vista.

We stopped to take in the view. It is a unique view of the mountain formation. There is a small informational museum. We stopped on the westbound side of I-68.
