Amazing views, well marked trail + booklets (to borrow or keep for $0.50. In French or English), and not difficult (non-hikers could do this!)

Quick and short ascension with the most insanely gorgeous Lookout!!! I would do this Trail every single day if I could! Stunning views from the top, truly!
Advice 1: We took up the incredibly comprehensive “trail guide” with us (offered at the trail head - either reuse it or pay $0.50 to take it home) and it was soooo informative. A mini geography/geology lesson mixed in with our short hike, and we loved it! Always cool to learn more about history of the hike you’re on, and it made it last a little longer!
Advice 2: bring a picnic up with you, there are several sturdy/comfy benches to hangout at (and/or boulders), the bugs weren’t too bad, and you can watch people canoeing/kayaking through the river below!
It legit felt like a scene out of Pocahontas or something - amazing!

Short and sweet; the views down into the canyon are awe-inspiring and the surrounding forest lovely. Watch out for little kids that they don't get too close to the edge.
