A beautiful trail. Starts and ends easy, with a moderate section in the middle. IMO, it should be rated as moderate as to not mislead novice hikers. Great places to explore in the rocks and caves along the bottom of the cliffs. Great views from the top.
Love this short trail. After the crowds of people at Garden of the Gods only a short distance away, this felt like a welcome respite that may be overlooked by the people flocking to the main attraction one hill over. I actually enjoyed my hike here more because of the lack of people.

John S. on Garden of the Gods Observation Trail
super easy hiking with beautiful rock formations
LOVE this trail. It is my absolute favorite in Illinois! Any time a friend says they havn't been, I take them. It is a very short trail if you are going for distance. The whole fun of it is to explore and climb around on the big rocks. Gives you a nice little rush. I recomend going in the fall when the trees are going becasue it is by far the best view. Also, I like to go on a weekday becasue it does get pretty crowded on weekends.
