A quick easy 0.7 mile hike to a astonishingly beautiful overlook.  Vastly underrated considering I don't know a soul who'd ever done it.  It's maybe a bit out of the way, but quite easy to get to.

Terrific out of the way light and easy leg stretcher with a terrific overlook for a payoff. Trail is not heavily used and can be tricky to follow from time to time. Parking lot probably holds room for 4-5 vehicles. Great views West off Potts Mountain. Potts Mountain Road can be a bumpy ride from time to time but it's the out of the way feel that keeps the crowds way down!
