This is a short out and back on the harder part of the trail. There is a pretty good elevation change on this route. There are also some steps, a bridge crossing and a rocky wash out that will be navigated.

The trail was quite overgrown and we found a ton of ticks, but it was nice overall.

This is a great trail. I thought the lookout was fabulous. The history of this park is a great thing to read about.

Great spot not all that well known. Early spring before the trees leaf out is the best time to go. Great cliff views and lots of bald eagles
