Views are fantastic for the effort put in. As of 8/13/17, there are orange ribbons tied around trees that serve as trailblazes. You can follow the ribbons all the way to the viewpoint. Parking is kind of a gamble, though. The lot near the trailhead looks abandoned but has private property signs.

Steep uphill through mature forest with spectacular vista of Mountain Lake, Kitatinny Ridge and surrounding landscape.

Quiet trail, not very well-marked. Outlook is a fantastic payoff. Go for a sunset.

Great view but portly marked and multiple trails make it difficult to find which trip takes you to the look-out. Worth it though. Beautiful trail. Very peaceful.

This is a great local trail for anyone in the area. The trail has a great view of Mountain Lake. It is a great trail to bring a friend and hand out on the top, it is lightly traveled (one or two hikers every few days).
