Great place for lunch, some wildlife viewing and train watching. It’s a pretty therapeutic place with some history to it. We try to bring fresh water up whenever we go as to refill the bird baths.

There are a couple ways up to the top of Hill 582. I took a route slightly different than the one shown and climbed the hill on the opposite side. Easy, short trail for any beginner, the hill is a great excuse to go into 4 low and enjoy some views from the top. If your kids or any of the kids in your family enjoy trains, this is a good place to bring them.
