Description


This trail was traveled by a
NRT Ambassador on 09/23/2018.

On this trail, you will hike 300 feet in elevation to one of the best views in the park. Atop the Yellow Rock, you will have an unobstructed view of the Lee Creek valley. Along the rest of the trail, you will see cedar glades, interesting rock formations, and the first structure built in the park.

There are two ways to access this trail. There is a trailhead on the road going to Campground A. You can also access this trail from the Overlook on Hwy 170. The hike from the Campground A Trailhead to Yellow Rock and back is about 1-1/2 miles and gains 300 feet in elevation. If you hike the loop at the top all the way to the Overlook and return, your distance is about 2-1/2 miles. If you start at the Overlook Trailhead, hike to Yellow Rock and return via the loop, the hike is about 2 miles with less than 100 feet in elevation gain.
