Trail shared by Brian Smith

A short trail to a scenic overlook of the river.

Runner Notes

This trail is too short to really warrant running.

Description

From the trailhead parking lot, follow the mowed trail through tall grass. Eventually, the trail will transition back into the woods before descending via wooden steps to the overlook.

The views from the overlook platform are stellar. The big bend in the river makes for expansive views both up and downstream. The rock cliffs on the opposing shoreline are also unique sights.
