Overview

Features: Fall Colors — Views
Family Friendly: This is a short trail with plenty of places to sit and enjoy the view.

Description

This is a very easy trail to follow with bit of climb all the way up to the viewpoint. The end of the trail reaches a spectacular 360° view without obstruction. The viewpoint may be crowded if too many people (~20) are also at the top, but visiting during the week or early on weekend mornings will help alleviate the crowd.

You'll see the Craggy Gardens Trail, which is tempting where this short trail may not be enough for an adventurer. If you're looking for more, I would recommend following up with that one as well.
