A simple out and back to a scenic view just off the Mid-state trail. The climb is concentrated on the quick rise to the top of the ridge. The overlook has a nice view to the south.

Amazing hike for the short distance. Perfect for after a day working in state college. I will definitely be sure to come back when the leaves are changing.

Begins from the parking lot and follows a small creek before turning up the mountain. The view from the lookout to the South is expansive. This could easily be turned into a loop.
