Powerhouse Overlook Trail. Partly follows trail 759, an old ATV trail. The route starts out as a road going steeply up into the forest. Quickly, the road becomes more of an ATV route. After 500 feet of climbing, the ATV road then drops a bit into a nice meadow area, after which the road then starts a 400 foot climb to the overlook. It is possible to continue on to Powerhouse summit along a faint trail along the ridge line through the scrub brush.

Uphill and rocky. Had a baby in a pack and that made my center of gravity off. Didn’t make it to the end because of short time. Didn’t plan for non-paved and narrowing road to trailhead. Good lookout about 1/2 way up. Pretty foliage and many blooming flowers. Lots of bees doing there work.

a little steep, but a beautiful trail. the elevation gain is worth the view from the top. there looks to be a trail the goes a little further. we followed it for a bit, but the brush gets a little thick and we didn't want to kill or damage anything. it's beautiful and green. definitely a hike I'd recommend.

bring some water! there are quite a few stretches in direct sun!

Quite steep the whole way up and on some loose rocks. Gorgeous view of the valley tho, and a fair amount of shade. The perfect summer escape hike. Getting up the Squaw Peak road wasn't all that hard and I could have done it in a passenger car probably. Lots of cool little lizards. We continued on past the overlook to do the Powerhouse summit, required a bit of brush beating through a faint trail along the ridgeline but we made it!
