Essentially a huge sand dune with some vegetation on the west side of the cap. Some sandstone layers visible to the west and steep drops on the NW. Easily accessible and very popular.

It appears that there is a very small contour interval for 280' that does not correspond to the stippling that symbolizes sand. It is possible this was simply a cartography error, but it seems properly placed for another interval.
