Nice hike but the red loop was closed on the way back (hiking clockwise). Posted private property, no trespassing, hunting area. Had to bushwhack across to the other side of the loop.

Beautiful place

There is no parking lot for the start of this hike but there is a small shoulder area on the road that can fit about 3 cars. Although there are several lookouts, there really isn't anywhere to sit for lunch except on the last one where there are some lig benches. The lookouts are also totally open with so shade so the fall might be more enjoyable temperature wise. Also very rocky trail so wear your hiking boots!!
