Moderate grade, excellent views to Table Rock & Caesars Head. This hike was a great little surprise. The trail is great for all ages and the views are excellent from the granite outlook. You can park at the trailhead or drive all the way to the top and walk down the trail to the lookout. Take the longer route, the trail is worth it.

Beautiful hike for a summer morning. Spiderwort and coreopsis were busting out blooms along the entire trail, and I saw multiple types of butterflies doing their thing. Beware spiderwebs - I always carry a stick to whack the webs in front of me. But even the spiders were beautiful. Among the highlights were the view (obviously) and a staring contest I had with a female deer along the trail.

Seems sketchy at first because there's really no where to park, but if you start at the sign and be sure to hit every lookout on the narrow trail it's worth it! The views are pretty awesome!

Trail head is not very well marked and the trail is very narrow at times but the view is breathtaking.

It was a great hike with my wife and two small children. It was very scenic and the fall weather made for comfortable conditions.
