  • Good place to get in touch with nature and do some exercise, quite steep trails, keep in mind that elderly people and people with problems in lower limbs should be helped to climb up to the crater.

  • The best!. It is simply awesome, nature, trees, cold weather, amazing views...... I loved it so much........
  • Very nice small park to enjoy for a few hours. The view of the crater is awesome, entrance is like $1, lots of fruit stands to eat inside and outside. Clean bathrooms on the outside of the park. Parking gets full quick so be ready to use your parking skills on the hill if necessary. There are kids inside who will tell you the story of the crater for a tip, please do so, they are smart kids who need the help.
