  • We found this place rather dull and uninteresting with the upside-down witch house looks really old and run-down. The witch statues are a bit funny and if you have no time you can skip this...  more »
  • Really went to town on the witch theme and chock full of tourists. Very tacky which ruins what is a lovely spot. The cable car up was good but what was at the top wasn't much chop.  more »
  • Great hike up. We took it steady and I would class it as a medium hard hike. We took the cable car down. Lots of fun.
  • Very scenic location. Several eateries in the area. You can drive up or take cable car.
