Didn’t think that the vie would be worth it, but I was wrong. Almost 360 view of the surrounding forest and hill tops.

great view of the park and you can see the red river in the distance and how it winds through the park!

The path is paved.

This is the trail we take our aged parents and friends with little kids on. It's great for those who want to see the Gorge, but can't do much hiking. Just a short, mostly paved, 1/2 mile, out and back to an observation area. The view is great though and everyone should see it at least once!

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.
