Description

The Big Flat Rock Overlook is just off the beaten path, but it's one of the best spots to take a break from the hike or even set up a campsite for the night. Hikers can also scramble up and around the backside of the campsite to stand on top of the overlook for an excellent view of the surrounding area.

Half-Day Run: This campsite is roughly 3 miles from the Tablerock parking area.

i went out with intent of hiking the loop counterclockwise from wolf pit rd. the trail was cruising and the views were awesome. the more hikers i talked to the more I learned that most people do it as a thru-hike from Table Rock parking lot to Wolfe pit or an in and out from one of the respective parking lots. it's the same thing on the other side of the Gorge. the bridge is washed out fording The River is not an option. I had to settle for an out-and-back. I hate out and backs. on the positive, REI hiking project actually put a blue dot accurately where I was on the trail.
