It splits off at the top at the bench, the one on the left is a nicer view in my opinion. It connects with other trails such as mountains to sea.

Hiked on 2/18/17 Short, fairly steep and rock strewn path. Well travelled. The view is amazing from a huge granite space suitable for lounging and picnicking.

Easy access off the highway. You take a short hike.until you get to a "T" in the trail. turn left hike for a little while and take a look at the views then turn around go back the way that you came and continue on the trail. I'm convinced that the marker is incorrect.

it's a decent hike down to the bottom of the valley / stream. going back up is always more difficult I'm going down.

overall a nice Trail. we're here over Memorial Day weekend so get there early otherwise there will not be any parking

Beautiful clear Black Friday day, opting out along with REI from shopping, we stopped at Beacon Heights for some sights. We had great views taking the left fork to see Grandfather and taking the right fork to see Grandmother. Hike is very short, trail is rocky and lots of roots and can be slippery if wet. Make sure you take both forks, and there are several other options at the base of the trail along the Tanawha trail. Recommend this short respite along the BRP!
