Trail
“Great short hike with amazing views! Also where most rescues occur. Wear hiking or tennis shoes, hat, sunscreen, bring a lot of water, and go in the afternoon to avoid the hot sun and lack of breeze in the mountains. Crowded hike, but afternoons are less crowded. $5 fee for cars, $1 for pedestrians. ”

American Restaurant
$
“Actually not my favorite, but lots of people love it. It is very close to the cottage, offers fresh baked goods, breakfast sandwiches, plate lunches, salads and more. The layout is awful, you have to wait in line to order while people have to squeeze by you to get into the shop to get their drinks and other items before squeezing back past you to get to the back of the line. Still it is like a right of passage on the North Shore and their malsadas are delicious.”
