“A beautiful mixture of forest trails leads to a breathtaking view of the Great North Mountains.”— Julien Naegeli
After 1.4 miles, you'll make it to the ridge that finally takes you to the white-blazed White Rocks Lookout Trail on the right. There is no signage at this intersection, so look for those several small cairns mentioned before. At the end of this trail, you'll have made it to the overlook – Enjoy the view!
When you're ready to head home, follow the trail back out to the Tuscarora Trail - Three Ponds Trail, make a right, and continue on trail until you reach the junction with the Old Mailpath.
Follow the pink-blazed Old Mailpath through dense hardwood forest to the junction with the Racer Camp Hollow Trail from before. Continue north at the junction, eventually reaching the Wilson Cove Trail and a quick westerly jaunt to the parking area.
