Description

Starting at the parking area, this trail makes a gentle descent through a forested landscape to reach a pleasant viewpoint at the trail's end. At the end, be sure to check out the two lookout points: one uses a post and metal rope covered with plastic for you to hold onto to climb on the rock. The other has a ladder to get to the plastic-covered metal rope. The lookouts are not easy to maneuver up. Be sure to use precaution when climbing. Don't let go of the rope (trust me).

There are small streams of water running through the trail occasionally, so waterproof footwear could be a good idea.
