Great photo opportunity in any season. It’s a wonderful stop on your travels in southern VT. Best photos are in fall, of course. Gets very crowded on weekends. We always go during the week.

It was a beautiful day with a view that was great! I would say we could see 100 miles or more. I would love to come back in the fall and look at this same view with the autumn leaves!
