Ok, didn't actually hike this trail. Went up to Skyline Dr. in order to find this trail. One of the other posts said the trailhead was out of Big Meadows. (You lose cell reception at that high elevation, so I didn't trust my phone app to take me there) We went to the Big Meadows visitor center to inquire about the location of the trail and was promptly asked, "Why would you want to go there.". They rangers said there was nothing there. Definitely no lookout like the picture caption indicates. We were directed to Rose River Trail which had no scenic overlooks but was filled with beauty, pools of water, waterfalls, jutting rocks etc...Had a really nice day.
