When I passed through here on Thanksgiving morning during a 335 mile AT section hike I found a big juicy half red half yellow apple someone had left at the overlook. It was delicious in leau of dried fruit trail mix for Thanksgiving dinner that night.

The first mile or so is straight uphill, then the top levels off. Great quick hike. Overlook faces west, don't make the same mistake I did.. and go for a sunset hike instead of a sunrise.

Tough hike uphill but totally worth it because of the beautiful view.
