A lot has been done to commemorate the Old Man at Profile Plaza. Particularly appealing are the "profilers" that form the image of the Old Man on the cliff where he once stood.

My wife and I both were looking for the “repaired” man in the mountain. Well its more of a memorial than anything else. A walk along a path alongside the highway and well that’s all. Disappointing, should not be a destination and really not worth the stop.

I have been visited the Old Man site for at least 30 years. I miss the Old Man! It's still worth the visit because the lake is beautiful and I enjoy walking to the site. The memorial is very nice. There's a lot to see and read about its history.

A must see .They have recreated what it was like to see the Old Man on the shore of Profile Lake . Stop and see the history of this amazing work of mother nature that was taken from us but still lives in the hearts of those who have seen him

Its a shame he is no longer with us , but the visitor center at Canon Mnt. and the Old man Site where they have recreated what it looked like to look up and see this wonder of nature is a must see stop
