Worth the trip and so many more amazing views. It was very foggy but standing on the edge of the cliff was a feeling I’ve never experienced.

Great hike but I got lost about half way through. Well not really lost, but I wasn't 100% sure I was on track and decided to head back... the trail isn't marked well (or at all) like Pinhoti Trail (which I highly recommend over this). Pinhoti is a great trail, Bald Rock and Pulpit Rock and incredible lookouts, but this one is just kind of alright. Still worth the hike if you're in the area for a couple of days.

Started at Lake Cheaha trailhead (Blue Marker). It was steep and rocky for the majority of the trail. Amazing views along the trail. Also a couple of very cold creeks to cool off in. The trail merges with Mountain Laurel (Pink Marker) at the scenic area. We followed the Mountain Laurel trail to the upper campground then cut through the wood to the observation tower and then back down to the lake. 3.6 miles total. Strenuous for the both of us, I'm 38, she's 14. I would definitely do it again.

This is a moderately difficult hike that offers great views overlooking the national forest and Appalachian foothills. Besides the views there are large rock outcroppings to climb on, a plane crash site, and plenty of places to camp. The trail was easy to follow for the most part, but was a little unclear near the top.
