Looking down on the lake being surrounded by beautiful fall color was worth the trip - a view you would never get tired of seeing. Only downfall - knowing that winter is on the way! :-)

splendid scene, Autumn colors just beginning to show, it's quite a hike up but the boardwalks and platforms are well kept and the area is clean from debris.

Well maintained park that makes one wish they had more time to explore...Overlook must be a beauty in the fall.

We liked this spot so much, we came here often during the week we were here. Beautiful drive up there, and a very short (300ft.), easy walk there.

Really pretty overlook. Nice hike down to the bridge that crosses the stream west of the lake. Please BE QUIET when visiting, your voices carry a long way here. Hills are really too steep for small children to hike.

This is a great spot for those without access to other areas of the park. You can drive right up to the center and there are ramps if folks are in wheelchairs or use walkers. The overlook is gorgeous.
