Up to Williams pulpit where the view is absolutely worth a stop and a chill moment looking at the lake below. Come back the same way it's mostly downhill and really easy
A beautiful forest with not so many people hiking around.

For the out of shape hiker this trail and it's steep inclines are a challenge, for everyone else it should be pretty easy! The views at the top are totally worth it.

So...almost exactly 4 miles round trip to Williams pulpit. When you see the sign, take the small trail to the left for the overlook.
