Great place for a hike. There's so much history here as you wind your way up and down the mountain. You will pass old mines and see the remains of the buildings when this was an active mining location and the company had an entire "village" in place on the mountain.

Shopping Centre
“The newest mall around town. Stores are located in a village like set up, with a sprawling parking lot in between. Mildly walkable, and a decent movie theater. Lots of stores, and a few fun places to eat (ShakeShack, Flip Burger, California Pizza Kitchen, Zoes).”
