The view from the top is very nice and it is a piece of Native American culture that you don;t usually hear about. The informational sign at the bottom includes a small arrow that states, "You are invited to the top." How much more polite does that get? I felt it would be rude to decline the invitation and I am glad I made the easy walk up the paved walkway and then steps to the top. It's a huge mound so kids will love it.
