Scenic overlook, rock outcroppings This trail starts out flat, then goes uphill at a fairly steep grade. Upon reaching the first bridge go left hiking clockwise heading up to the scenic overlok.

This is a nice 1.5 mile hike that offers a view of Taum Sauk Mountain Range from a scenic overlook and provides access to Big River. Went on the hike with a friend and we did not see a soul on the hike, although the trail was still snow covered. Snow hikes are the best!
