There are a number of spots in Monte Sano State Park to see amazing views of the valley. The road to the park is filled with curves and tight turns so be sure to keep alert and drive safe.

If you like to have numerous choices for day hikes, this is a great place. Small ranger station can give you info. Some are moderate and some difficult. Ranger will rate them for you.
