The views looking towards the mountains are beautiful. You can wonder around and look at the rocks. Toilet also (long drop).

It's great! We went there really early in the morning and it's beautiful. We got some amazing photos and I had a fun time climbing on the rocks. This is a visit for friends and family. I recommend coming here.
