“What a view!”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

The trail to the top was quite rocky, but not too steep. The climb is worth it because the views were gorgeous from the top. What a beautiful place! Bring your camera.

“The mighty lake”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

I loved seeing the lake from a distance. I always wonder what the Indians thought about as they viewed the lake before white man came.

“A view so good that I was married there!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

This mountain attraction has multiple viewing levels for your enjoyment. There is also a gazebo that you can hang out in or get married there [rentable]. My wife and I like this place so much that we were married on the mountain at a lower viewing point that has a spectacular view of the island farther up the lake. This is a driveable road [pay for this] or you can hike up from a parking area from inside the town.

No matter what, this is a great place to visit in the fall and for a great view of the lake!
Highly recommended

“Fall Foilage Eveywhere”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The drive up the mountain is just spectacular. First there is no charge and you may stop along the way to enjoy the view. There are designated spots were you can stop. You can only drive 3/4 of the way up. Then a bus will take you to the very top. The fall leaves were at their peak and and breathing. You can also hike and explore the mountain at your own leisure. A must see if you are in the area.
