The best thing is you can either take a leisurely stroll up the main trail, which us suitable for kids and older folks. Or, you can take one of several more strenuous paths to get your heart pumping. Either way, you end up at the...More

After driving past the parking lot for this spot many times I finally stopped to make the short hike to the lookout and was not disappointed with the view with an overlook of a bend in the Susquehanna River.

Parking is available at the entrance to the trail to the overlook. The hike is mixed as you enter. A short little incline (slightly rocky) and then the trail is well maintained to the overlook. The overlook has different ways to access the two major...More

I tell everyone that they should visit. It's not a difficult walk but if you want a more challenging hike there are other paths that you can take. When you get to the view you want to take a ton of pictures because it's amazing!

We had a great walk up to Chickies Rock County Park main overlook. It was a simple incline in regular shoes and rewarded us with lovely views.

It was about a 0.6 mile walk from the parking on Rt 441. Not a hard walk. Kids were out on the cliffs smoking and hanging out. It's a pretty view overlooking the Susquehanna, but we've seen others just as nice.
