Wouldn't recommend this trail. Poorly marked and signs say to stay off trail and follow the dry stream bed. Views are relatively the same on both sides. Drive there is a bit long on the gravel road for a poorly marked trail (Maybe because we were spoiled in other areas)

This recording is actually for Wire Pass, but somehow I couldn't load that map for this recording. I am not sure if or how I can change it to Wire Pass. We did not go to the overlook. Keep in mind that inside Wire Pass (after the turn off for Buckskin Overlook), there is an 8 foot drop that is a challenge. This can be by passed by going up on top of the canyon. Both ways can be a bit tricky if you're not used to it.
