It's about a mile to the overlook with a fairly steep trail. The incline levels out once you start nearing the top but the first half or so is steep. I did have trouble following the town's trail map because there are unmarked trails that intersect the main trail. I wasn't quite sure at times if those were trails I should turn on or keep going. The direction also seems to be more exaggerated on the map than the hike actually is. My compass showed me going east slanting south, which made me think I hadn't hit the southern part of the trail yet. In fact, according to the map I was well south. That obviously led to me going past the turn onto the trail I was meant to take. I did notice on the way out that there are placards on the back of the trees that name the trails. It just would have been more helpful to have those facing people coming INTO the park, not leaving it. All the same, it was a very nice hike with really incredible views worth the mixups!
