We connected to this trail from Limberlost. It is an uphill trail but not difficult. The trail will terminate at Skyline Drive but if you cross the road you will be at the Cresent Rock Overlook parking lot and you can enjoy the view before making your way back down.

The hike is nice and rocky but the views are better from the scenic pull out off the road.

An easy hike between the Crescent Rock overlook and the Limberlost Trail. We added the easy walk around the Limberlost Trail to our hike for a three mile hike. We parked at the Crescent Rock Overlook MP 44.4. The nearest bathroom is at the Skyland Dining Room.
