In addition to the wet and rainy times, every spring and autumn winter should come here for a trip. There is even a winter camp activity. In this place in the spring of summer, there are many activities such as camping, pinic, hike, bird watching, sightseeing from the cliff and especially climbing (rock climbing).
Rock climbing does not have tools so it is mainly watching people climb. On the cliff, there are hooks, who want to climb, they need to bring equipment and climb themselves and climb down the mountain to play. In addition, there are quite a lot of Turkey Vultures in this area, sitting and eating lunch and seeing a flight around their heads like they want to eat.
For hiking, there are two loops (Vista Advanture Trail – 1.5 km and Buffalo Crag Trail – 3 km) and Nassagaweya Trail (4.7 km) straight to Lake Crawford. The Nassagaweya is only one way, so it should be about 10 km. Depending on the time and health status of each member, choose the appropriate route.
A special feature of this trail is that there are many locations along the side of the road where you can zoom away. In general, sightseeing is very beautiful. In addition, sometimes you may be overwhelmed by the green spaces and towering trees on the side of the road.
