Definitely worth the stop! The view from the top is spectacular, especially with all the foliage colors. Also, don’t forget to visit the fort down below. Interesting look at history

It doesn’t take much time to go up into the observatory (on a not busy day) and it is well worth the short elevator ride and minimal entrance fee. There are amazing 360 degree views and on a clear day you would be able to...More
