Nice hike on the AT. Saw 4-5 people. The only thing I really want to point out is that I feel like this hike is backwards. It should start on 645 so the views are the reward. The way I did it I got a parking lot to sit in and have lunch with my dog. Next time I’ll know.

Nice hike, Mild traffic, really superb views for this area. I’ve hiked this trail with my dog a few times, so don’t be afraid to take them along!

Very easy trail, some rocky spots.. but for the person who never looks down while hiking, the views along the trail are awesome.

Beautiful scenery - wear sturdy shoes the further into the trail you get the more rocks there are!

It's really not a hike to the overlook. Like another hiker mentioned,it's about a two minute hike from the road to the beautiful scenery. Great spot to just relax and enjoy the view.

Hmm never heard it called Kimmel View or Fisher Lookout before. Locals call it White Rock of the 501 lookout. Great spot to check out ! You can meet all types of hikers at this location all year round! Right off the road about 2 minutes. One of my favorite meditation spots before or after work.
