The Escarpment Trail connects with the more popular Indian Ladder trail at the park. I went for the Indian Ladder but found it much shorter than expected, so continued along the escarpment for a couple miles. It actually goes quite a bit farther than the 1.4 miles that this states -- if you look at the dotted line trail on the map here you can see it goes much farther than the red marked trail for this listing.

Anyway, the trail follows along the ridge providing excellent views around every corner. It is relatively flat and easy to walk. Few muddy spots and easy to traverse. Very beautiful -- a great day hike if you combine the escarpment trail and the Indian Ladder.
