“Must do hike”
Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

Awesome hike up the mountain, past an incredible abandoned run down hotel, and over to amazing views. The hike is fairly steep in some spots and uphill the entire time. Depending on your fitness level the difficulty of the hike would vary, I think it's doable for most people, but it may just take longer. Bring some water and snacks with you and enjoy!!!

“A magnificent hike”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

A fairly steep hike up to the top of Overlook Mountain was well worth the effort. The views are magnificent! It took us a bit over an hour as we are 2 senior citizens. Interesting ruins of an old hotel about 2 miles up, then another 1/2 mile to the fire tower at the summit. The path s actually a jeep road but is rocky and uneven but very walkable. We did it in the morning when temperatures were cool. The path is through the woods so a lot of shade.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

We loved it! Some how we had trouble mapping it but found it! Maybe use the Buddhist temple address? I agree with the reviewer about it being steep. We also work out but this is straight up different work out! However, so worth it! You hike up and the hotel is right in front of you! Then another .5 to the top to the fire tower. All other hikers friendly. Great free entertainment. About 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
