Beautiful views of the Green Bay with short walks on stairs and ramps. This is especially good for people who don't want to take long hikes to see some fantastic view points with bluffs and water. Gravel road to get there, so beware convertibles, motorcycles and classic cars. But it is a very scenic drive through the forest, especially in the fall.

Quick detour off highway 47 leads you into a beautiful road with more than one tree bisecting the road. The overlook is right off the parking lot and breathtaking view of Lake Michigan. There are other longer paths that can be hiked too.

Take a short detour from the road, hike down the trail and stairs a ways, and look out over the bluff. That's about it, unless you're wanting to take more time to hike. It's a great spot to look out over the lake... would probably be great sunsets from here. We were a little early for colored leaves, but they would be pretty as well.

Definitely worth the few minutes it takes to drive the couple of miles to this overlook. Very short walk to see the view of the escarpment. Some of the path is dirt with roots and rocks, but easily navigable. Total walking distance is maybe a block down and back up. And it's a pretty drive to get there.

This lookout has always been a location we only share with close friends. This is our favorite place for sunset but only if few people know about it. It’s a short drive off Hwy 42 and is well worth it!
