Very popular, well-used trail in great overall condition. Nice overlook with awesome views of Wineglass Bay at the top of the saddle. Trail splits one-way in each direction up and down so not much opposing foot traffic. Less busy later in the day, and the...More

The hike up to Wineglass Bay lookout is relatively easy with good resting & viewing areas along the way. Beautiful forest & rock formations & the view of the bay is stunning on a sunny day.

Amazing place and hard work walking to the lookout and would have been beautiful if we could have seen it !! Unfortunately the weather was not our friend that day and was drizzly, misty and windy!
