The center will serve as the main entrance and parking area for the 11,000-acre reserve and will include seating areas, retail and exhibit spaces, a climbing wall, and restroom facilities accessible from both inside and outside, Hartley said. Reserve guests will also be welcomed and credentialed as they arrive at the center, which will provide parking for more than 12,000 vehicles. Plazas outside will allow groups to congregate before they are transported to the Scott Summit Center within the reserve. The site will also feature J.W. Point, an overlook offering views of the mountainous landscape.
