  • I'm honestly not totally sure why this cross is here... I guess I should Google it, but it is a quality giant metal cross, if I've ever seen one. It's well lit, easy to find, and large. But even on the platform and in the surrounding clearing I didn't find a single bit of explanation for why it is up there. Though in all honesty, if they put a big metal plaque or something, I'd probably only glance at it anyway.
  • Good variety, I seldom go there. You can find stuff that you cannot find in some other places. Good quality stuff! I would go there every time in the future. Great place for hiking, running or sightseeing. Very nice place and I will go there again in the future, I like that is not far from where I live and it's not very busy in the week-ends. I'm sure you'll find it pleasant easy accessible and comforting.
