Nice views

Just a short walk from the parking lot at the top, you come to the top of the cliff, both times we had just run the Saco River the day before so... More

We could not find the path that is supposed to be a fairly easy walk. So we drove to the top and were not disappointed.

After parking in the lot it was an easy hike ( less than 5 minutes). We went on a Saturday and were lucky to find a parking place at the top. It was fun watching the rick climbers come up over the ledge
