I would recommend parking in the main lot when you first turn in if you're looking to maximize the time you spend getting there. Even with doing that, you'll probably only spend a total of 50-60 minutes walking to and from the spot.

To get to the view that you see in the pictures:

1. Keep following the gravel road, and eventually you will reach a part of the road that is like a large hill. You should be able to make out a house or two on your left at this point.

2. At this point, start keeping your eye out for a trail to your right. It will still be a short walk up the road, but it's coming up. The best way I can describe this is that it's the first trail you'll see with an upside triangle sticker on a tree that is indicating you cannot bike on the trail. (There is an identical sign on a path basically right across from where you need to go, so don't get confused.)

3. Once you make it on the path it's self-explanatory. It's only about a 10 minute walk to get to the view!

Take the gravel road back about 1.2 miles then there’s a trail on the right that takes you to the outlook. Trail is hard to find unless there’s cars parked outside it. Pretty view! Not too crowded.

Definitely a short hike. I parked in the state game lands lot on behrens road, the trail was just like everyone says, short, but worth it for the view. you have to keep an eye out for the yellow diamond marker on the tree indicating the trail for tank hollow.

Easy trail to walk, mostly flat, but not well marked. Glad we met someone who showed us the turnoff. View from the top is spectacular. We packed a lunch and sat on the rocks to enjoy the views.

I love this hike. I've been living in Hawaii since 2014 and this was my 2nd hike since moving back to PA. For those of you who are looking to do it for your first time, if you're not an advanced or moderate hiker, through the first gate to the second. It will cut about a mile off the trail. Walk the path for about a mile until you see a tree on your right hand side with an arrow carved in it and a mud trail.... follow the trail. I took my lab with, enjoy IG @snapshot_ianw
