This unofficial trail leads to one of the best overlooks in the area - once you get to the top you can see for miles. This is an out and back trail with a steep scramble to get to the top. There are two main ways up. To take the most popular route up, bear to the left of the rock, a very obvious trail will lead you to the final climb up, this is a steep, 20 foot rock climb, but it has hand holds. The second way, bear to the right. just after you pass the first tower, you will be facing Lockegee Rock. While there are several ways to get up on this side, the easiest way is to follow a large ledge around the side of the cliff and gradually work your way up.

Rating this a three because the trash and graffiti diminish the true beauty and potential of this place. The view at the top was spectacular, but the beer cans, shards of glass and pointless graffiti was not welcomed. I did take my dog ( it’s a wonder he didn’t step in any glass or vomit along the way) and he did have some difficulty scaling the rocks up to the top. I was able to hoist him up and down (he’s a 70lb golden retriever), so if you do take your pup, make sure you know your limits and their comfortability level. Other than scaling the rock, the trail was fairly easy

We are very disappointed. There is so much graffiti and trash in this area. It ruins the beauty. There is so much potential here but it is a wreck. So sad.

Very muddy on the trail. The drive getting to the trail head is on a steep winding one lane road.
