This is a look out point. It is great for a drive on a sunny day. Be very cautious of rattlesnakes.

Another former scenic area heavily degraded by humans, If only this spot could have been patrolled more by the DNR. or forest service over the years and it should have been gated off at night. I still remember when the rock wall was intact but it's always had too much broken glass and trash to truly enjoy it.

This is actually not necessarily a hiking trail. But there are numerous hikes that branch off of Hogshead Road near to Buzzards rocks that are undiscovered. Including an old hobo house which dates to the 1800s?
