Lovely views over the river at short walk distance from the car parks. The fall colours were great and a bonus was the sighting of the two deer which walked across in front of us.

We took the longest hike up to the view point. They say it takes 2 hours but it only took us 1 at a good pace. Great signage, trail maintenance, and great views. I would recommend!
