Very nice hike. A steady but not difficult climb, gorgeous views. Lots of bugs for some reason, be sure to bring bug spray. Absolutely camera worthy. More people than I expected but it is mid summer. A good hike if you're recovering from some more strenuous ones and need a breather. Starts at the picnic area, not the overlook. Trail was clearly marked. Saw a deer, lots of swallows at the rock, and bear scat but no bears.

This was a beautiful hike with the west side parts being amazing with the cool wind to deal with the humidity. Mary's Rock had a great view. with a few good vantage points along the route. Definitely a good trail for pictures.

Lovely- pretty crowded even on a Monday morning though

This was a great way to see the views from Mary's Rock and add also some distance and elevation to get a good workout -- and some peace and quiet that's less likely up at the popular vista. The first half mile or so along the ridgeline was particularly pretty (particularly with leafless winter trees giving great visibility that you might not have in the summer.)
