We recommend you take a good pair of hiking shoes in order for you to be comfortable whilst walking, but also for you not to slip around. The opening being at 8 am, visiting the place early is highly recommended, too, as a lot of people tend to come at around 10 am. The site closes at nightfall, which leaves you plenty of time to admire and enjoy the scenery.
