Short flat walk to the lookout deck. I loved that they have the (graffitied grr) sign explaining what you are looking at. Makes more of an impact. This is a quick stop for view and pic nick, rest stop

Quick off HWY 20 hike. Nothing epic about this except the killer view.

Not much of a hike, very short, good for stretching legs. Nice view out over the valley, and the two hydraulic mines. The best part of this visit was the wonderful Washington Lilies in bloom.

Tiny legs structure of a hike. It winds through a new growth forest and has interesting interpretive signs. The Overlook looks over old hydraulic diggings. Great for when you have driven long distances and need to stretch out your leg and back. There are wonderful cross-country ski trails for the winter that take off here.
