Great place to walk or drive up to the tower and take in the views. Climbing to the top is easy but can be scary with small children. Nice area to spread out eat a picnic or even read a book

Nice hike up a paved road, or you can drive up and there is some parking along the way and at the top. Good views but nothing special
