The Pagoda sits upon a hill and offers fantastic views of Reading. Quaint gift shop with snacks and drinks. Interesting history and most unlikely site. I️t is about 60 stair walk up but worth the view. No elevators.

The Pagoda sits high on a hill offering a great view. The history of the building is interesting. There is a small gift shop and coffee shop.

Not much at all, pretty straight road for the most part, although it starts a little windy. It's a really nice place, makes for good pictures. Enjoy!
