Ah, the Wild Rose trail...a pretty name for a pretty hike. I wish it was longer but that's okay. I would do this again. It's kind of hard to find, so do some research about its location before going. I'm actually glad it's an obscure hike. Makes it more enjoyable. :)
I'm sure the overlook has some magnificent views but we had to turn back at the halfway point today due to a quick weather front coming in. We had torrential rain, hail, thunder and lightning come down on us. I didn't feel like being a lightning rod today. I'll get this one another day.
