As a local I never tire of the view from Jonsrud Viewpoint. It is awe inspiring. We have many family portraits and Christmas pictures that have been taken at this spot through the years. Even before it was a nice pull out.

Doesn't hold a lot of cars but worth visiting. The view is awesome!! Great place to get your pictures of the mountain with sunsets or sunrises. The landscape is never boring.
