Description

This trail starts from Olivia's Overlook Parking and heads through the field to a kiosk. From the kiosk, you can follow the blue blazes to the right or left. Continuing to the right will wind you over a few moderate switchbacks to the vista. At one of the turns, there'll be a red-blazed trail; this is the Ridge Trail. The trail descends from the vista then turns left. It runs past Brothers Trail (on the right), then ends back at the kiosk.

Flora: Hay-scented fern, beech, American chestnut, red baneberry, tulip poplar, black raspberry, red raspberry, sassafras.
