Short walk with one of the best views in the park, I love seeing it in the winter when everything is covered in snow.

After doing a bit more challenging hike with our 2 preschoolers and 1 toddler (worn) in the morning this was a nice second hike of the day. It was very easy to stay on the path. It's wide and often paved. We started a little concerned bc of the elevation and advertised cliffs/drops, but they were not an issue because the path was so clear and wide. The view at the end is breathtaking and just the motivation/reward our small hikers needed... well that and promised fruit snacks upon completion.

More of a walk to an observation area than a hike. .5 mile round trip. Great view with a paved trail, which worked out well for us as we had our son in a stroller. Couple this with Princess Arch which is in the same parking lot.

I hiked NE from Koomer ridge campground on the Koomer Ridge trail #220 to the Rough Trail #221. I turned left, NW to the Sheltowee Trace where I turned right, North. I hiked to the Red river suspension bridge near Chimney top on the map (but this trail doesn't go to Chimney Top so it is mid-named). I hiked in January and Chimney top creek was high. The trace crosses the creek 4-5 times in this section. I waded (burr) and balanced across fallen trees across. At the bridge I turned around and followed the trace past Rough to the BR trail #226 left, SE. Back to KR #220 right, S, and back taking the right fork #208 to hidden arch the back to the car. The app shut off for a while but I think this route was 13 miles. It took me 6 hrs. Beautiful hike.
