It's easy and quick to locate as it is just about 5 minutes from downtown, and offers really cool views of the city and surrounding area. Definitely worth checking out if you are here for any more than a couple days.

Driving to the top is not for the fainthearted but well worth it for the views at the top. Excellent walkways and lookouts at the top. Very interesting history of the location as well. The drive back down was significantly less nerve wracking! :)
