  • Easy, flat hike with lots of lizards. I love lizards.
  • The short, easy hike to reach this point is filled with spectacular, grand views the whole way. Definitely a must-do if visiting this park. The changing views will keep you entertained all the way with a big payoff when you finally reach the overlook. At the overlook, there is a mound of car-size boulders that are easily scaled and from there, you can get a great 360-degree view. Highly recommended! NOTE: While, prepping myself for this visit, I assumed that this was a ten minute walk from the parking lot. I was way off! I would allow for at least 2 hours. The trail winds around more than I thought and there is a lot of ups and downs. You could rush and get it done in one hour, but you really need to build in another hour for all the picture taking and general resting to soak up the scenery.
