Bring a lunch and enjoy an unforgettable view at the picnic tables spread at the top of the mountain. Take the hike or drive all the way up the mountain to savor the spectacular beauty of America’s most historic landscape. The beautiful view can be seen from the road driving up and down the mountain.  The picnic Pavilion is a short, steep walk from the upper parking lot.
