Directions to the trailhead are spot on. Hike upwards along Watertank Branch for a short distance. Turn to the right when trail splits (rather than continuing along creek). Yes, the trail is steep on first section, as it was poorly designed. There are numerous outcroppings with good views toward the river, not just one. The trail (trails, in truth) levels out along face of bluff. I saw numerous climbers hiking in while I was leaving. Worth the very short, but strenuous hike.
