Another great view point is Palisade Head. This is an awesome spot for rock climbing! I haven't climbed it - I've never known anyone up there to climb with - but I would love to someday! On almost any given day - in good weather, that is - you can find climbers out there. It is a sheer drop off, so don't wander too close! And don't kick rocks on the climbers - they don't like that! The view here is great - straight down is even better! Look to the north and you can see Shovel Point in Tettegouche.
I wouldn't recommend being up here in a thunderstorm. You will be tall and exposed on the rock. A good lightning rod. Again, its fun to climb around the rocks, just have to watch that darn edge! There really aren't guardrails to protect you, yet I can't recall hearing of anyone that fell off the cliff - though I'm sure it happens.
