Enjoyed this place and the history surrounding it. The needle is truly unique and hard to imagine that anyone could actually climb it. Well worth the $5 parking fee

Stunning location and the hike is very easy, even with small kids. And FREE, if you are willing to park on the road before the parking lot.
