This mini hike from the lackluster rest stop is most scenic. Grippy smooth rock draws you out. It's similar in grip to Papago Buttes. Here it's lathered in litchen and hosted by a crumbly base.

This was my second trip and by chance I wore sandals again. They work but the stability of a shoe would be more welcome.

We checked this out to eye the side canyons. Bruce nixed 'em as too brushy. Which looked to be true. Yet they look intriguing and you can't beat the ease of access with the rest stop parking.


It screams to be the perfect jaunt for Apache Trail tourist, families or the perfect date hike. The above categories will probably be satisfied with under a mile round trip. The further you go the dicer it gets so keep the Griswold's alive. Two miles out-n-back should cover the entire overlook.

From the parking lot follow the sidewalk until it ends. It's an arbitrary off trail adventure continuing on. Be careful as it is potentially dangerous and deadly.
