The initial walk down the gravel road is long and can be hot on a sunny, summer day because the road is open without much tree cover. The side trail to get to the cliff is easy to miss and unmarked but if using the hiking app it will mark where to turn. This next trail is beautiful. Its shaded and full of wild life. Towards the end of the trail it becomes rocky with large boulders, can be dangerous and difficult for young children or small dogs. The end of the path is worth the hike. Beautiful view of the gorge below and miles outward above the trees. Caution!!! Sunbathing on the edge of the cliff were two Copperhead snakes. My husband unbeknownst almost stepped on them. We actually have a picture of him standing just a small rock above the crease they were laying in. (Before we saw them of course!) Therefore, keep caution for snakes and tread carefully.
