This place is never busy but the views are amazing. Plan to sit down and have an ear of corn or a .60 coke. The rock roof restaurant is cool too. No entry fees and close to town.

My family made the trek up Puerta Del Diablo. My kids age 5 and 8 made it up no problem. The stairs were easy for them to navigate. I got a little tired but I'm also not the most physically active person. The views were...More
