This is a serene chapel where a weary traveler can sit quietly and rest. Beautiful chapel

Parking is all along the windy road up to the chapel. Don’t take the first area. Keep driving. It’s a bit of an uphill hike from the lower lots.

After a long drive from Vegas - arrived at 5:06pm - just after entrance to the chapel closed. Really disappointing - hadn't realised there's a time difference :( Managed to get some lovely photos from the outside - but not the same. The drive was beautiful - lovely landscapes along the way.

This place is beautiful. The only thing I would point out is after reading other reviews I assumed I could look out the large window. You can’t. That didn’t matter though because it’s such an amazing place

It took a bit of logistics to get here because it only takes one ridiculous driver to back up the road. But the view is breathtaking from the top and worth the drive if you have the time and patience. Not Catholic, so enjoyed the chapel but didn't find it spiritually motivating. The view is really fabulous, so come if you have the time and patience to endure the potential traffic snafus. Fresh, clean air!

Serene and spiritual it's a place to find your soul. Peaceful. The views are fabulous. Try going when it's not too crowded. We were there at 2pm. There is parking all the way up near the entrance. There are also little buggies that take you up.

Breathtaking. Wish I could have seen inside the chapel better. The windows were too dark and it was closed to visitors. I would love to have seen the crucifix up close.

Beautiful little chapel at the top of the mountain with great views! Traffic is a bit hectic but enough people coming and going that there isn't a long wait.

We went during the week and it was crowded. Limited parking. If you do drive all the way up it is very difficult to turn around an SUV. Volunteers on Golf carts will drive you up for free. Please tip. Lovely scenery on top. Glad I went but don't need to return. They have gift shop below.

Beautiful place! I would not go here to watch the sunset as we were asked to leave at 5pm by the (slightly aggressive) employees.
