Nice picnic area. Beautiful drive. Would have been a nice view if it wasn't so cloudy.[Nancy, 04/15/2014]
Weather can be quite unpredictable at 1,999 feet. You may find the picnic tables clammy with humidity or baking in a sun unshielded by normal sea level atmosphere. Some travelers have been known to acclimate en route at the 500 ft. level, while buying gas and snacks.
