The overlook is something you don't wanna miss out on!! Make sure to make your way to the falls because it is beautiful. The views are definitely worth the challenge

Beautiful scenes, some parts test your abilities but this is a fairly easy hike. I'll be back soon, loved the overlook views!

Relatively easy out and back. Moderate elevation change worth a puff or two. Fun trail with wildflowers so "stop and smell the roses" along the way.

Nice trail with some steep incline but lots of soft pine needle trail as well.

I hiked the northern half of this trail, then used the Orange connector and the white trail to loop back to the trailhead. Don't skip out on the King's Chair, Eagle's Nest, or the other periodic overlooks because they offer some of the best views in the park.
