The site consists of parking for passenger and recreational vehicles and an overlook for visitors to take in the views of the surrounding countryside. Commercial trucks are prohibited at the facility.

Planned Improvements

The planned improvements are for a self-sustaining welcome center with rest room facilities that will serve two main functions;

1. Provide information to travelers about the natural, cultural and related resources in Western Maryland and

2. Showcase alternative energy, water supply and wastewater treatment technologies, to educate the general public on energy conservation.
