Bring a lunch basket and sit a "spell" is a good way to describe this location. One turn off the main drag and you are in a little paradise. Beautiful view of the river so bring a camera or two for your own Kodak moments.

I came here with my girlfriend and we walked down the path a little and it was cool seeing the giant rock with people rock climbing on in. We didn't hike any of the trail but we went to the overlook and view was amazing! We would like to come back.

My daughter loved this little hike. She loved climbing on the rocks and was able to successfully do the short hike without getting tired. We took a picnic and made it extra special while we took in the breathtaking view.

'Tis only a short hike from the parking lot to the overlook and you can go either the really casual route (to the left at the fork) or actually hike through the woods (to the right at the fork.) Definitely worth a stop!

This is a beautiful area! And there is a fantastic place to get bikes, Chiques Rock Outfitters, who actually brought the bikes to our b&b. They also have kayaks and canoes. There is a rail trail along the river, fantastic!!!

One our way to dinner my boyfriend stopped here to show me the lookout. What a romantic moment we shared looking out over the river. Next time will be packing a picnic and checking out everything this location has to offer....if you are in the area STOP, you wont be disjointed.

This short, easy hike took us to a wonderful view of the river. We were treated to a bald eagle circling overhead, many cardinals and golden crowned kinglets.

A rough, rocky, hilly trail that leads to a view of the Susquehanna River below. Awesome views! Several trails lead off of the main trail and seem to be a steeper grade for those who are more athletic.

We visited in the spring, when the trees were just breaking out. The view from the rocks is gorgeous! My family enjoyed the hiking trails, which were just right for us...smooth enough to be safe for children (and women with bad ankles, like me) but wooded enough to please my more adventurous husband.
