Beautiful scenery - wear sturdy shoes the further into the trail you get the more rocks there are!

It's really not a hike to the overlook. Like another hiker mentioned,it's about a two minute hike from the road to the beautiful scenery. Great spot to just relax and enjoy the view.

Hmm never heard it called Kimmel View or Fisher Lookout before. Locals call it White Rock of the 501 lookout. Great spot to check out ! You can meet all types of hikers at this location all year round! Right off the road about 2 minutes. One of my favorite meditation spots before or after work.
