Great elevation gain and beautiful views and rock formation. only hiked half since we had a toddler and hubby had to go in to work. definitely will come back to complete, probably without children. I like to keep a certain pace on the trails that have great elevation gain.

Enjoyed this as a nice end of day hike. We powered through but the overlook is worth the whole thing. Not a hard hike and well worth the scenery.

This is a wonderful trail. It has a great mix of overlooks, incredible rock formations, and forest settings. The trail is well maintained and easy to navigate. There is enough elevation change to warrant the moderate rating and provide a good workout. This is definitely one of my favorite trails in this area.

be sure to take the Upper Canyon Trail that connects near the overlook. at least take it down to the creek. worth it!!

Good hike decent views

Found this trail while geoaching in the area on 6/10/2018. The trail is fairly short but scenic. The trailhead kiosk had some interesting info on the "Pickett's Dark Sky Project".

A really amazing hike. Could not recommend it any more highly! So many beautiful cliffs and rock formations. The view at the end is great. Definitely an easy hike if you’re just looking for a brisk one.

great easy trail with spectacular views. I've only hiked part of the new connecting trail (can't remember name) buy also spectacular. Although the Easy rating no longer applies.

Easy hike with awesome views. Lots of places to explore on the trail. The rock shelter with all the boulders was a favorite of our group.

Double back a little from the overlook and go down the steps into the canyon. Be sure to see the Killdeer Arch/ Mesas, you’ll still end up at Black house Mt Rd. Nice hike. About 3.5 mi. one way

Gorgeous view for minimal effort. Would wait a couple weeks for leaves to change for optimal hike.

If you go you must take the trail that goes down under the overlook to see all this area has to offer, so much more to see than just the view from the overlook,much longer hike but well worth it.

This is another hidden gem. Well-graded, well-maintained, lightly-used, lovely woods. The overlook reminds me of Savage Gulf only smaller. There is a lovely bench on a rock shelf that invites you to sit and enjoy the woods awhile; I was trying to do it pretty quick, but I couldn't help but linger there a bit. It's also next to the Pickett-Pogue Astronomy Field.
