Went on Cass for the 3rd time in 25 years. First time in spring, however, and we really enjoyed. The views were fantastic, the weather couldn't have been better. Tends to be rather cold up top in October but it was just lovely for a picnic in May 2014. We could not have had a better time.
We travel with a wheelchair and they were well prepared for us. Used an elevator lift to get into the train. Accessible bathroom was nearby. Gravel path at the top was not well done for manual wheelchair, too soft, but we managed to get where we wanted to go. Could not get on the observation platform at the top, steps only. They tell us that will change this year.
Sound system not very good so if you want to hear a guide give their narration it is not always loud enough. They really should do that via headphones for those that want to hear it. Part of the problem might have been that we're early in the season and the guides are learning their way.
We took the 4.5 hour trip to Bald Knob. Highly, highly recommend this excursion.More
