Love the place. Worth every bit of the travelling to this place during Autumn. We did not even manage to hike up to far, it was already beautiful. Clean and beautiful.

There are various routes you can choose for the climb up and you really don't need to get to the top because there is beauty every step of the way. Especially in Autumn, it is fabulous. Definitely worth spending a day there.
