The hike begins along the continuation of the gravel Hatton Ridge Road for about 1.5 miles. Take a side trail on the right and hike into a clearing. The last 0.5 miles is a peaceful walk on a wooded ridge top to a spacious overlook.

The overlook at the end of the trail is rated a 15/10 according to the author Jerrell Goodpaster of Hinterlands. Even though this trail goes along an unused gravel road, the eventual woods hike and stellar views are worth it.
