Peaceful. Walk thru the forest was inspirational. Great views a great hike but not for people not used to hiking.

This is the site Saint Francis would retreat to for solitude. It is really a magical place and highly recommended.

Not many tourists up here, at least compared to the sites in town. We came in the evening, and ended up wishing we had more time to wander around in the woods. It's beautiful up there. Not hard to see the draw.
