Gorgeous views!!! Easy hike. Bring water, phone or camera. And maybe a blanket to spread out if you want to hang out just to just soak it all in (highly recommended)

Although the roads are in rough condition to get to the trail head (mainly just the last couple miles), the hike was completely worth the trek. First I recommend stopping along the way to the various waterfall viewpoints the park offers. The hanging rock trail itself is in good condition and leads you through a forest where a fire came through in the early 2000's so some of the older growth still has char marks on the base, which is cool to look at. The path is a reasonably steep climb, so if you are coming with kids prepare for some pit stops along the way to catch your breath. Once you get to the top the view is phenomenal. If heights don't bother you carefully go onto hanging rock because the viewpoint is one of a kind for such a short hike. Regarding the roads, we went with friends and we both had Subaru foresters - if possible I recommend a suv type vehicle. If that's not possible you can feel it out or find a place to park on the shoulder of the road farther down. Make sure you do that before the road gets too narrow, otherwise cars won't be able to get around you. The biggest problem with the road is huge divots and uneven surface.

Awesome Trail, amazing views, clear path and well kept. The drive there on the NFD roads are another story. Not a terrible drive but some crazy roads, luckily I had nobody coming the opposite way or else you are in a bad spot. Highly Recommend.

This place is amazing! Easy hike with stunning views! I don't have an issue with heights normally but crawling out on this rock gave me some. Pretty freaky.
