Description

The South Overlook Trail is a basic, mostly flat trail. There are few notable views save for a small area looking down to the Shoreline Trail. You'll see a large number of prickly pear cactus on this trail, probably the greatest quantity of all the Eagle Mountain Park trails.

Flora & Fauna

Large groups of cactus can be found in the fields surrounding this trail.
