Feb. 2019. Very quiet and fun! We parked at the bottom and walked up and then down.

Super cool site! And aside from Snake Alley, Burlington has lots of interesting architecture to look at! Great town to drive through.

If you drive south across the small valley from the lower end of Snake Alley, you can get a telephoto shot looking up the alley.

Now I've driven down both Lombard St. and Snake Alley. Lombard is much more fun, but I'd love to go tubing down Snake Alley in the wintertime!! Anyone know if that's possible?
